    I am not sure on these books,but my advice is the more the better. Take a look at your college program book list. And check out some websites like chapters graphic design section. Basically if your are thinking about graphic design, stick with the books that are more about designetc. compared to the history and nitty gritty stuff, this way you can see if it is what you want to do. here is a post on this about some stuff:

    my advice Read all you can and try to do as much as you can to see if it is really what you want to do before you go to college. Best of luck

        Your ppi is dependent on your print method.
        Where are you going to get a 142cm (56") square image printed? And on what?

        As far as stock is concerned, what works and what doesn't is entirely up to the project at hand.
