Anyone know the copyright date or date of publication for the The Adobe Font Folio 11 Type Reference Guide being sold now on the Adobe site? Online Sales Dept has no info. Thanks.
It's 2008. This is the cover.
According to the Wikipedia Version 11 of the font folio was release on Sept 5 2007. If the Folio was sold with the Guide that would make it a 2007 release. I don't know if the Wikipedia is correct, but I do know copyright dates and dates on the cover of software and books are frequently incorrect. I think publishers think the later dates will make will spur sales and keep the product fresher longer.
The book was published in December 17 of 2007, and has a copyright of 2008, as you can see on the Adobe Press site http://www.adobepress.com/bookstore/product.asp?isbn=0321544722
The book that originally shipped with Font Folio 11 had an all-black cover. The contents of the early version of the book and the current version are the same. The book currently being sold is thus a reprint of the original Font Folio 11 book, but with an updated cover.
Thanks for the reply; agree about book marketing strategy, having been
in book publishing for many years. Just wondering how complete a
portrayal the book is of the current OpenType library. Will probably
buy it anyway.
Thank you so much!
