"Absolutely invaluable! Harrower has gathered an amazing amount of information and offered an excellent collection of illustrations and graphic examples."

Roy Paul Nelson,

author of
"Publication Design"

 

"Tim Harrower gets better with each edition of his manual. It's witty, informative and — best of all — a superb swipe book for jaded journalists seeking new rabbits to pull out of the graphic hat."

Tony Sutton,

president, News Design Associates

 

 

“It’s beautifully designed, so well written and funny — especially refreshing in a textbook. Those features also help students absorb the great and reader-oriented design philosophy Harrower espouses.”

Cecilia Friend,

Utica College

 

“The Newspaper Designer’s Handbook is the best book I know of for teaching the basics of newspaper design. It could just as well be called The Newspaper Designer’s Bible. It’s practical, informative and fun to read.”

Rachele Kanigel,

San Francisco State University
