He is coauthor of 16 other books on desktop publishing, covering InDesign, QuarkXPress, and PageMaker. Gruman led one of the first successful conversions of a national magazine to desktop publishing in 1986 and has covered publishing technology since then for several publications, including the trade weekly InfoWorld, for which he began writing in 1986, Macworld, whose staff he joined in 1991, and most recently the design newsletter SBS Digital Design. Originally a newspaper reporter in Los Angeles, Gruman got caught by the production-technology bug in 1979 and hasn’t recovered.
