More About the Author

Andy Clarke's been called many things since he started designing for the web over ten years ago. His ego likes words like "ambassador for CSS", "industry prophet" and "inspiring", but he's most proud that Jeffrey Zeldman once called him a "bastard". He runs Stuff and Nonsense, a small web design company that specialises in designing highly usable and attractive websites.

Andy's a renowned public speaker and presents at web design conferences worldwide. He teaches web design techniques and technologies through his own workshop masterclasses, For A Beautiful Web and is the author of the best-selling Transcending CSS: The Fine Art of Web Design. He writes a popular blog, And All That Malarkey, mostly about the web, and tweets as @malarkey.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read 3 Sep 2010
Format:DVD-ROM|Verified Purchase
I really do like this book/DVD, it is not a book that you keep by your side for reference (such as the CSS the missing manual) but it is one that you do keep coming back to all the same. Andy Clarke really does know his stuff and he makes you question how and why you have structured your web pages the way you have, it really does explain the importance of semantic mark up and how you can achieve it.
Andy is a real arty person which can sometime make him seem a bit cheesey on the DVD and although the DVD is OK it adds only a little extra to the book yet I am glad I got the book/DVD set than just the book alone.
It is not however a good introduction to CSS (well it is called the master class after all) but a fantastic introduction to creating good CSS once you have mastered the basics, for me it is a great companion to CSS the missing manual that should take you to the next level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Managing creative process on web design 10 Nov 2009
By Alvaro Gonzalez Fernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD-ROM|Verified Purchase
This book is not a css book. This book is a guide of which steps you should do when you design a web site. Andy will give you very useful advices:

- First thing the content and then design layout
- Follow standards. When and why.
- Create one markup and many designs through css
- shows you which html elements will be more useful in different situations.
- How to manage different navigation software and versions.
- Semantic content. Micro formats

I really like it. It's well written and very good edited. The only drawback it's that dvd content and book content it's very similar so probably spend 20$ more in the pack (book + dvd) maybe is not interesting thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars CSS Artistry = Mastering core and advance knowledge of CSS 1 May 2009
By Lucas Glib - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD-ROM
CSS Artistry brings fresh ideas on how to write pages and tries to point out the idea of semantic web. I believe that is the way to go in the future. Andy gives very nice ideas and guide how to achieve that. DVD also talks about box model and inheritance. Thanks to this DVD I understood what relative really means and how cascading works. Lucas
2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 7 Nov 2012
By David Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD-ROM|Verified Purchase
This isn't a guide to help beginners make the best decisions or even learn about CSS techniques. I was hoping the book or video would take us through on how to master CSS by leading us through an example project. I was very disappointed with this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good examples 30 May 2009
By H. H. J. Steeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD-ROM
The DVD shows very good examples of a layout the designer wants to achieve and the way to get there. Besides he creates layouts that I've never seen before, not even similar. The book is also good and inspiring.
