    One thought on “Transcending CSS: The Fine Art of Web Design”

    1. I enjoy reading Andy Clarke's blog, and really identify with people like Andy who are trying to bridge the gap between visual, graphically oriented designers and people who are technical, code-based, linear thinkers in the Web development field. I even hate using that distinction, because I never fit it in any either/or fashion.I picked up this book in part because it really is a beautiful book: rich, elegant, luxurious. Reading through it, though, I'm finding that, as someone who has done page [...]

    2. If you've ever considered web design as art, /Transcending CSS/ may be the book for you. I found the fine art aspects a little heavy-handed, and the section on finding inspiration may, for the average engineer, invoke a bit of eye-rolling at times. (Not that it's not a valid point, but spending 85 pages on it is a bit much.) But, once you get around some of the drawbacks, there is some very useful information in this book.The main focus of the book is to encourage the separation of presentation [...]

    3. There's code here and there on my personal website that goes back to 1994 or so, when I built my first webpage by hand and hosted it on my personal account on schenectadyn.purdue (try typing that five times fast). And HTML 1.1 served me just fine for the next 10 years. Right around the time that I would have probably needed to really dive in and modernize things around here, I moved much of the site over to MovableType, which took care of enough that I could put it off for a little bit longer. B [...]

    4. Quando si legge un libro tecnico, diverse domande saltano in mente: è per principianti o per esperti? Dovrei leggerlo prima o dopo altri libri? Sarà tecnico o solo nozionistico? Lo leggo velocemente o mi metto al PC a testare gli esempi? Nel caso di questo libro, ne spunta almeno un'altra: è per grafici o per HTMListi? Beh, in questo caso, la risposta è sempre "entrambi". Andrebbe letto prima di affrontare lo studio della grafica web e dei css, rapidamente, ma anche riletto dopo, e gli esemp [...]

    5. I was disappointed with this book.There was far too much name dropping. Mr Clarke only seemed to draw real-world examples from within a narrow spectrum of the web design community, which felt to me like navel gazing.Although the book is prettier than your average web design book, too many pages were devoted to photo montages that seem like filler.I gleaned a few tips from the book, particularly regarding semantic CSS class and id names, but not enough to justify the cover price. I know many web [...]

    6. Excellent guide on some simple but effective methods of designing sites that takes into account other, oft neglected details. This doesn't exactly teach you a ton concerning actual css itself rather its more of a compendium of best practices, approaches, resources, and ways to smartly craft a proper site design. One thing I wasn't terribly keen on is that some of the content makes web design and css far too out there than it actually is, as if CSS and web design is some sort of aspect regulated [...]

    7. I started getting a few CSS projects at work this spring, and I was like, "uhhh." Cascading style sheets for the web had always sounded really boring or at least, more of an organizational tool than a design one. So I went to Barnes & Noble one day at lunch to find a good reference book and came across Transcending CSS. I've read other reviews of this book that describe it as career-changing, and that really was true in my case. I've spent the past four months reading anything and everything [...]

    8. An excellent read for anyone wanting to take their standards-based web design to the next level. I love focusing on a content-out approach to design. Not only a CSS discussion, this book provides excellent information on grid based design and looking outside the web for inspiration.My only complaint has to do with the argument that we really need to design for cutting edge browsers and not worry about how the design translates to older browsers that are still widely used. I still believe we need [...]

    9. Probably the most famous web design book written to date is Bulletproof Web Design. I would say that for techniques and web design theory this book will be quoted and hoarded by web designers. The book itself has already gained world wide recognition by being translated into five different languages (possibly making it one of the top, if not the most read web design book to date). The author is a member of the W3C and currently developing CSS3.If you are a web designer, not reading this book is [...]

    10. An enthusiastic online discussion with fellow web designers was prompted by the question 'What is mastery of CSS'. This book was recommended and I finally found it in the computer programming section of Barnes & Noble. It's going to take me a while to get through - not because it's tough sledding, but because in nearly every paragraph there's a gem and I have to go back, re-read, try out the code, or simply sit and muse a while. It's beautifully designed and choc full of tons of stuff I didn [...]

    11. Un libro que sin duda alguna, me ayudó a activar un interruptor interno con respecto a cómo visualizar el CSS. Lo recomiendo ampliamente para todo aquel que quiera adentrarse a las aguas del desarrollo estándar de HTML/CSS.

    12. This took me further down the street where The Zen of CSS Design left me. It's career-altering and interesting to me; probably not for you.

    13. If you are a web designer, this book will increase your understanding of semantic designing. By using mainly div block statements in your html code, you are limiting yourself to other html that are often better choices.

    14. Great book for web designers. I was the artist whose work is featured on the cover of the book. See more at ronhuxleyartist

    15. Non solo CSS, come il titolo potrebbe far pensare, ma un vero e proprio manuale di progettazione per il web, ricco di fonti e spunti di ispirazione.

    16. This was a waste of 50 Dollars. If you are looking for something the actually Transcends CSS or even begins to explore scripting languages beyond oh lets say a monkey's bald ass then don't bother.
