Carter, a graphic designer who should also receive a bravery award for tackling the subject of copyright without a law degree…Not only does Mary Carter navigate the legal issues with dexterity, she also shows an insider’s understanding of the audience for whom the book is intended…art directors, reps and graphic designers…In fact, she comes out on the right side of all the copying question.” —Tad Crawford, Communication Arts magazine 1996
