Default How Does one go about learning DTP?

I know the obvious answer here is school. That's not an option, and I went to college decades ago! I'd like to learn about DTP and design graphics in my spare time. As an independent business person, I have need of such knowledge in making flyers, business cards, and whatever else I might need.

I thought design graphics might be a good start, getting me thinking on this topic as it relates to layout, paste-up, or whatever you call it. I picked up a nice looking book over the weekend called Design Elements: A Graphic Style Manual by Timothy Samara. I'll go through that in my spare time. And I have some other recommendations from forum members on another thread I had going about software I needed. I thought if I broke out this topic on its own, I might attract some comments from people who would not have noticed my software thread.
