Most books on code are visually boring, but HTML & CSS designed by Jon Duckett makes the reading experience much more interesting and fun. I haven’t read the book, but I’d guess that the good design will help with the learning experience.
I’m a brand spankin newcomer to the HTML and CSS world, so I’m all for books that make learning easier. Thanks for tweeting on this. The image “A Closer Look at Tags” is excellent but I have to look a little further. I know just enough code to get myself into trouble, which means my pages won’t validate and I can’t figure out why!
I ordered this book for my girlfriend, and it’ll get to her in a week or so. She’s been wanting to understand what I do for a living, haha (I also bought her the book so I can look through it too).
A great example of design informing delivery of content — the contextualisation and focus on individual elements help this stand out as a learning tool.
