Some people of this community write packages but there are also those that write books. Therefore I ask, what community members have written books on TeX and friends?

(One answer per book or series of related books. Include whatever detail seems appropriate.)

  • @Forgiver This is as hard to tell for sure since like for any other question one do not have give reasons for voting. My guess is that the votes shows which books is the most recognized.

  • My university library just got PSTricks book which I ordered two months ago. I am not sure that a novice user of PSTricks can learn anything from the book but my knowledge grow exponentially. I immediately ordered three other English titles for our library. Money well spent:) Dr. Voss has done a great service to TeX and in particular to PSTricks community by writing PSTricks monography and I would like publicly to thank him for the effort. Truly magnificent work to document PSTricks family of packages. Commented Feb 21, 2013 at 20:43
