Graphic Design Study Group GIMP Books

I've reviewed a lot of the information for the GIMP books. Most of them are terribly
out of date. The following three are new enough to warrant examination. I also
added the pocket guided, even though it is for a much older version then the
GIMP that we are using. It might have some use. I'll let yall know.

Also I am going to recommend that folks start bringing USB Key Drives to
all of the study groups. That way your creations can go with you.

The list follows my signature.

Kind Regards,
Joseph James Frantz
