Conceived and developed by Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Professor Frank Romano, the series covers 34 essential topics in all.
"From novice designer, to CSR, to sales pro, to seasoned printer, these books should be in every printing house, service bureau, and design firm," said Professor Romano, who is chair of RIT’s School of Printing.

Gregg Van Wert, NAPL’s president. "Short, to the point, and written in plain English, they explain everything from Acrobat to XML in terms even a novice can understand."
