Focus: multi-page documents & the grid system.
Required text: Josef Müller-Brockmann, Grid systems in graphic design: A visual communication manual for graphic designers, typographers and three dimension designers. The best, most thorough, and most rigorous explanation of the grid system of page design, with numerous specific examples.
Recommended additional text: Jan Middendorp, Shaping text. Possibly the best currently available overview of how typography works, with lots of examples.
A useful resource for using InDesign: Olav Martin Kvern, David Blatner, & Bob Bringhurst, Real World InDesign CC (or any earlier edition of Real World InDesign, though they might lack some features of the most recent InDesign versions). Direct, conversational, occasionally funny, and very practical guidance in using InDesign’s many features, including type.
