I'm very interested in web-design and I'm looking for books that will give me a good foundation in the topic. What do you recommend?
Here are a couple of books that will put you on the right path.
- Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML
- Build Your Own Website the Right Way Using HTML & CSS
- Eric Meyer on CSS
- The Principles of Beautiful Web Design
- Learning Web Design: A Beginner's Guide to (X)HTML, StyleSheets, and Web Graphics
Designing with Web Standards is always relevant. Standards are important to learn early.
Do you have a graphic design background? If not, I'd highly recommend The non-designer's web book. It's an easy read but really useful!
