For beauty, be patient.,
This review is from: The ZEN of CSS Design: Visual Enlightenment for the Web (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
I've been an admirer of the CSS Zen Garden online for a number of years and when I caught sight of this book I knew I had to add it to me design collection.
This book is NOT a reference or tutorial in the fullest sense - but it's a brilliant inspiration of what can be done with CSS to craft artistic, striking and unique web sites that allow yours to stand out from the mundane crowd.
If you are looking for design ideas, design tips and a few good suggestions add this to a good tutorial guide and you'll not want for anything.
Remember though, that many of the designers featured in this book have spent long hard hours to perfect their designs and ensure they were compliant to both CSS standards and the idiocy of browser programmers. If you want the same then you'll need the patience to work through the standards and the lack of browser compliance. Perhaps one day we can all look forward to even better designs when all browsers comply to a universal presentation standard.
