Web Design Bibliography
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: May 2012

The web continues to evolve at breakneck speed with no signs of slowing down, recently demonstrated by the widespread adoption of HTML5 and CSS3. Designers who fail to stay current quickly fall out of demand as their skills become obsolete. This first happened with designers who failed to transition from table-based layouts to CSS, and will continue to happen as better ways of designing for the web are discovered. In short, even the designer who “knows everything” only does so for a short period of time.

This bibliography is your guide to tackling the breadth of topics required to become or stay a web designer. Safari Books Online has the latest web design books and videos, enabling aspiring designers to grow their knowledge and established designers to stay on top of their game. We have selected the most relevant resources and segmented them by subject. As you read through them you will learn, refresh or update your knowledge of design fundamentals, website planning, design tools, web coding, usability, imagery and illustration, advanced design concepts, the business and lifestyle of design, mobile web design and content management systems.

Comments about oreilly Web Design Bibliography:

This is a good compilation of web design related categories. The categories are classified into - Web design fundamentals, Planning, Web Coding, Web Design Toolkit, Usability, Imagery and Illustration, Advanced Graphic Design, Design Lifestyle and Business, Mobile Design, and Content Management Systems.

This book provides a handy reference to all currently available books on Safari pertaining to a particular category. Safari online links are provided for each item.

My only disappointment is that all of the items listed in this book are Safari online items. There are no references to anything outside of Safari like blogs, web articles, etc. This makes the book appear more like a Safari catalog than a bibliography.
