5.0 su 5 stelle Design-centric, rewarding 22 agosto 2015

Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Although it is a little bit light-weight for an HTML programmer, this text is graphically beautiful through and through. I learned a lot about fonts and layout, even though I thought I knew quite a bit going in. I was more "enriched" by this book than "educated," but that's okay, too. A nice break from the usual coding text.

5.0 su 5 stelle Not Another CSS Book? 5 gennaio 2007
Di MrBlank - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
If you were to randomly grab a book out of the web technology section of any book store odds are you'd get a book on cascading style sheets (CSS). They're everywhere. With a flood of CSS books on the market, it's not a problem finding out how to write CSS, make it valid, standards compliant and accessible.

Being a creative person from the print world who made the transition to the web, I've had a hard time finding any sort of resource on the creative process of Web design -- which I find sort of strange. Any book on print design focuses on the creative process and spends very little time talking about applications or operating systems. Yet when it comes to Web design, it's all code and browser compatibility.

I suppose there is a reason for this. Print design has its roots in the fine arts and tends to be very visual while Web design emerged from programming and tends to be highly technical. It's basically the old "right brain" vs. "left brain" fight. So, how do we meet in the middle?

I thought I had found my answer in The Zen of CSS Design, but it fell short of my expectations. While it was good for creative inspiration, it ended up being a gallery of advanced CSS techniques without much explanation behind either the creative or technical process.

Now, with the release of the follow-up to The Zen of CSS Design, I've got my answer: Transcending CSS, The Fine Art of Web Design by Andy Clarke. This beautifully designed book is about design and not markup, and assumes that you already know about XHTML, CSS and Web standards. It goes over designing from the content out, finding inspiration, establishing a workflow, creating wireframes and prototypes, and working with grids and the box model -- allowing both sides of your brain to work together in harmony. It's about time!

5.0 su 5 stelle Bridging the Gap Between Visual and Coded Languages 14 giugno 2007

Andy Clarke has written a gem amongst well-structured, but often dry and monotonous CSS manuals. This book particularly benefits the fine artist, who follows a more conceptual and visual approach to design, by connecting the dots between CSS implementation and the resulting visual presentation.

I will admit that 'transcending CSS' was read in conjunction with two other CSS books: 'Beginning CSS' by Simon Collison and 'CSS Mastery' by Andy Budd. However, it was 'transcending CSS' that sealed the gap and created a bridge with the first two books. It was almost as if each author had unwittingly wrote their book with the others in mind; they make a great series in CSS instruction. I strongly recommend that if you are completely new to CSS, you try reading Collison first or something comparable to basic CSS.

This book has amazing visuals that help motivate both designers and developers to use CSS as a creative tool. The technical content is properly structured and explained with 'everyday' dialog. It's also a great resource for browser tips, designer sites, and various tutorial links.

If you are more of a visual person, you may find some sections on inspirational techniques a bit redundant, especially after your brain has switched into tech-mode by practicing the CSS exercises. However, I considered this good training. It's overwhelming being bogged down with too much tech in the beginning.

All in all, I found this book well worth the time and money.
It remains one of the few technical books I have read from cover to cover, without skipping around to garner specific bits of information.

5.0 su 5 stelle Inspirational and practical--excellent code and design examples 7 maggio 2007
Di Adrienne Adams - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Andy Clarke's "Transcending CSS" is the first book on CSS that successfully marries the artistic and technical skills that are the heart of modern web design. The book should appeal to those who are primarily trained in the design disciplines--the author includes a thorough treatment of grid-based design and the use of mood boards, scrapbooks, and other creative tools. "Transcending CSS" will also be of great benefit to the seasoned CSS hand, as he challenges us to reexamine old habits and workflows, to embrace change, and to plan for advanced web standards.

Apart from a core group of "standardistas", the field of web design is still a divided camp--graphic designers who cling to WYSIWYG editors and claim they "can't do HTML", and coders who (though technically adept with markup and programming languages) lack the most basic knowledge of the principles of visual design, color, typography, and the like.

Andy's book goes a long way towards fostering the development of a truly professional discipline of web design, one wherein its practioners are well versed in aesthetic theory, confident in their creativity, and technically capable of creating functional, accessible, and durable web content. This book is also an engaging read, as Andy's wit and energy shines through his writing. (Andy's presentations are immensely popular on the design conference circuit.)

"Transcending CSS" is a must-have for your web design bookshelf, as indispensable as Dan Cederholm's Bulletproof Web Design: Improving flexibility and protecting against worst-case scenarios with XHTML and CSS and Web Standards Solutions: The Markup and Style Handbook (Pioneering Series) and Eric Meyer's Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide, 2nd Edition.

5.0 su 5 stelle REQUIRED READING! 21 maggio 2007
Di Michael S. Boardley - Pubblicato su

Every Web Designer MUST read this book.

If you are new to CSS? Start here: Stylin' with CSS: A Designer's Guide (VOICES).
After you have read that book, read this one.

If you have used CSS for a while start here.

This is not a step-by-step book for the novice. It is a way of looking past CSS, HTML and Web Design.
It teaches to you view the web in ways you never imagined.

Andy Clarke visually helps you grasp concepts that I know I would have never learned elsewhere.
This book changed my life and the way I view web design. Most people code HTML & CSS without truly grasping the technology.
The knowledge exposited in this book made me a professional and took my skills to the next level.

Sure there are other books that can teach you step-by-step CSS, but unless you truly get it, you'll only be parroting the author of the book.

If you truly want to understand Web Design, XHTML & CSS, produce quality code and websites, read this book.
