“Photoshop Type Effects Gone Wild,” book and disk, by Al Ward; $35 from Wiley.com.      People love fooling around with typefaces, ourselves included. It was the biggest selling point of the Macintosh when it came out,

Photoshop Type Effects and many hours were spent creating outlandish styles. Some people sent letters printed with a dozen different type styles (very hard to read). For a long time you couldn’t do that with a PC, but the cheaper machines finally caught up. With the aid of this well-illustrated book, you can learn how to make letters and words that look like they were made from smoke, water, fire, etc. You can duplicate a commercial product’s label exactly. Fun, fun, fun.
