There's an aura of magic surrounding the term desktop publishing that has made it one of the fastest-growing segments of the personal computer revolution. Stated simply, desktop publishing, or DTP as it is called in the trade, holds the promise of a revolutionary concept--the democratization of an industry by putting the power to publish in the hands of practically anyone with a computer.

Ventura Publisher, the oldest name in desktop publishing for IBM-compatible computers, is available in a new Windows version and, at least through June, in a bargain-priced bundle.

When you see the high quality Ventura provides, you won't be satisfied with reports from even the best word processing programs.
