“The Art of T-Shirt Color Separation,” a comprehensive how-to book written by veteran industry artist Mitch Different, is now available in e-book format as well as hardback. It
offers a hands-on approach to separating artwork using Abobe Photoshop.
It includes the full gamut of separations including four-color process, simulated process, spot colors, creating white underbases for dark shirts, mixing channels with vector graphics, creating halftones without RIP software, and more. In addition to the book, all you need is Photoshop and a compatible vector program to get started.
The e-book is available in a downloadable pdf format, and the price includes two downloadable copies: one for a computer and one for an e-book reader or iPad. It also has hyperlinks for downloading working files as well as finished files, which are used to check practice jobs.
It is priced at only $29.99. The hardback edition is $69.99 plus shipping and tax.
Information is presented in a step-by-step format and written in easy-to-understand language that even a nonindustry person can understand. The book comes with complete, fully illustrated exercises of working files and a DVD loaded with Photoshop files to be used in the exercises. Check your work against furnished completed separations to help you learn.
