PostScript Language Reference, 3rd Edition (Adobe Systems Inc)

The official and comprehensive reference guide for the PostScript language is the PostScript Language Reference, also referred to as the Red Book.

It was written by Adobe Systems Incorporated, the organization that developed and maintains the PostScript standard, and it details the language's syntax and semantics, Adobe's image model, and the outcomes of the graphic operators. LanguageLevel 3 extensions have been added to this Third Edition, which unifies a number of earlier extensions and adds a number of new features like high-fidelity color, support for masked pictures, and smooth shading capabilities.

The only resource for PostScript programmers is this Red Book.
