There are a number of good books on PostScript. If you do much
PostScript programming at all, I highly recommend that you get one of
these print books.
PostScript Language Reference Manual: Second Edition
- This book is put out by Adobe Systems Incorporated and is
published by Addison Wesley. It is the reference manual and
pretty much defines the language. The operator reference guide I have
here pretty well follows Adobe's reference in this manual. Their
reference is, however, far more detailed (and accurate). This book is
known as the "Red and White Book." Adobe also provides other books
(including the "Blue" tutorial and cookbook). The
ISBN is: 0-201-181127-4
Learning PostScript: a Visual Approach
This book is a fine beginning text for PostScript.
The book emphasizes PostScript's fantastic graphics abilities while
illustrating basic language constructs.
The language concepts are illustrated with graphic design examples, most of
which you will be tempted to use in your own documents.
The book also includes a number of interesting and useful utilities.
