Desktop publishing

Desktop publishing was pioneered by Paul Brainerd in 1985 when he released the software Aldus Pagemaker for the Macintosh computer. Desktop publishing is the use of a computer to produce high-quality documents containing text and graphics formatted for a single-page publication. For example, desktop publishing is utilized to create printed material such as book covers, brochure, and fliers.
