My web design bookcase

August 13th, 2004

A few people reading this already know I’m a web designer. This is something you might not guess from simply looking at this site but that’s what I do during my week – design sites. I just don’t talk about it too much. It’s not that I’ve got nothing to say on the subject, I could say plenty. But there are plenty of people doing it for me already (see the blogroll for instance). One day I might write a groundbreaking, engaging essay on web standards, web graphic design, usability, accessibility using some real-world sites I’ve worked on. For now I continue to feel similarly to Mr. Zeffrey Zeldman on the matter. So, instead, I’ll provide you with a rather nice montage of covers of books I use in my day-to-day work. If I was really clever, I’d attach links to each of the books via the magic of CSS but today I simply don’t have the time. So I’ll just list them below.

My books, see below for list and links.

I hope to post my own reviews of these books sometime. For now, read the reviews on Amazon – they’re fairly balanced.
