One of the best books on scanning I've ever run across is "Real World
Scanning and Halftones: The Definitive Guide to Scanning and Halftones
From The Desktop," by David Blatner and Steve Roth.
ISBN No.: 1-56609-093-8, PeachPit Press, 1993.
The writing style is lively, informative, and by no means "too techie"
When I added graphic design to my technical writing skills, it made a
tremendous diffference in my marketability; this book was a valuable
asset. I think you'll agree after reading the first chapter.
