I would like some suggestions on nice books/video tutorials in web design and typography.
To be more specific, I’m comfortable with most languages (i think), and would like books that would help me make my website more more attractive.
I’d like at least one book on typography and another one on general design techniques as well.
Currently, I’m reading “Don’t make me think” by Steve Krug.
There’s a lot of hype about 8 Faces from Elliot Jay Stocks. I have never read his magazines but they always sell out. I would assume either these are really good or it’s just hype because Elliot is popular in the industry.
Also, a lot of typography comes from inspiration from others. Today I added over 130 pieces of typography designs to a gimmebar collection found here.
@ChristopherBurton Actually it has nothing to do with the fact the I write on Baseline. It’s an open community so anyone can. It’s the personal project of a close friend of mine and I really want to see it take off!
@jatinh – Follow them on Twitter, they all post great stuff on there. I can’t think of just a few great resources that I always go to. I usually have 10-15 tabs open searching around for things I like and then I save them on Gimme Bar to look at later.
@ChristopherBurton *sigh* What’s with all the assumed defensiveness around here as of late? It’s getting old pretty quick. Try re-reading my reply with a fresh set of eyes, then you might see the excitement I was attempting to express.
