    The first book I read was Jeffery Zeldman’s Designing With Web Standards and it open my eyes to the modern web and standards and semantics! I really dug Luke Reblewski’s book on Form Design, and all of the A Book Apart series was great – short and sweet. I especially liked Mike Monteiro’s Design is a job. The O’Reilly CSS Pocket Reference by Eric Meyer is really handy. There is still so much to read though! I’m trying to level up my JQuery skills so I’m reading Learning JQuery (Third Edition) by Jonathan Chaffer and Karl Swedberg and it’s really good so far. Easy for a dummy like me to understand (or about as easy as it could be I imagine).

  • Mixture

    Firstly, thanks for the mention…

    Just to follow on from conversation that mentioned Mixture and confirm a few details:

    1. Mixture is cross platform – windows + mac
    2. We have a built-in server (no build folder) so everything is dynamic and running locally is like running on a real server. But if you want a static version you can convert to HTML when ever you like or publish to Mixtures servers with one click and then share the URL.
    3. We have teams using Mixture now and more features to help teams work with Mixture are coming shortly.

    Thanks 🙂

  • These are my favorite web design books:
    Design Is a Job
    The Principles of Beautiful Web Design
    HTML and CSS: Design and Build Websites
    Handcrafted CSS: More Bulletproof Web Design
    CSS: The Definitive Guide
    Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML
    Don’t Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability
    Designing with Web Standards

    I rate and review all the web design books I read here, on Goodreads. I also post my reviews to my site,


    I have been putting a lot of stress on my back. Is there a way that you can minimize how much you lean forward?
