The best Web Design book available!

Well… I can’t say that I have read EVERY CSS book, but I have read quite a few. This particular book covers so much more than just CSS…

The book itself is “Transcending CSS, The Fine Art of Web Design” by Andy Clark The content of the book falls under 4 main parts: Discovery, Process, Inspiration and Transcendence. This particular book isn’t really aimed at the novice or casual css user, but is more focused to the intermediate to advanced users.

The book doesn’t just cover CSS practices, it in Andy Clarke’s own words “It’s about design and code playing nicely together. It’s about the way code is meant to support design considerations. It’s about breaking the chains that sometimes keep us too far grounded in reality.”

It covers so much excellent content that I find myself looking back at sticky-noted pages for reference quite often. One of my favorite portions that he explains is how the ‘content-out’ approach enables to to create a new type of workflow. He lists the work flow as follows:

1. Gather the content

2. Work with wireframes to organize and present that content

3. Creat static designs to demonstrate creative concepts and layout ideas

4. Write meaningful markup that structures the content

5. Work with CSS to implement the design

These are just a few portions of the book that really stuck out to me, but I would encourage you to get a copy of it and read through it, there is too much valuable information in it to not do so!

I also had the pleasure seeing Andy Clarke speak at An Event Apart in 2008. His keynote presentation was just as loaded with insightful information as his book was. So, if you ever have the chance to listen to him or read his work, do it! This guy rocks!
