I’m a book lover. Everything about books, from their smell and design to the content inside appeals to me. So you can imagine my pleasure when discovering great books about my other great passion – web design. So without further ado here’s 3 of my current favourite web design books:
- Don’t Make Me Think by Steve Krug
- The Big Red Fez by Seth Godin
- The CSS Anthology by Rachel Andrew
As much about usability as web design, this book is one of the best resources on building effective websites. As Steve says:
It’s a fact: People won’t use your website if they can’t find their way around it.
A simple, straight forward book focusing on how to make any website better. Again focused on usability as much as web design The Big Red Fez provides real world examples of what it takes to create a website that satisfies your visitors and ensures they keep coming back.
As a relative newcomer to CSS this book provides practical solutions to building a CSS, standards compliant website.
This list is by no means exhaustive but it’s a great start. I’ll keep adding to it as I discover new books I love. It’s also an excuse to keep buying them. ;)
