"LearnPS" is a HyperCard stack to learn PostScript, released in autumn 1988 and authored by John F. Sherman from Carnegie Mellon University (link).
It is a computer–based interactive tutorial, featuring examples and animations, illustrating key concepts of PostScript Level 1.

The book "Taking Advantage of PostScript" (link) by John F. Sherman, released in 1991, grew out of this HyperCard stack, extending its content to PostScript Level 2. It was accompanied with LearnPS on a disk.

It was also featured in some books on postscript technology by Peter Vollenweider from University Zurich (link).
