Quatrième de couverture

Proving once and for all that standards-compliant design does not equal dull design, this inspiring tome uses examples from the landmark CSS Zen Garden site as the foundation for discussions on how to create beautiful, progressive CSS-based Web sites. By using the Zen Garden sites as examples of how CSS design techniques and approaches can be applied to specific Web challenges, authors Dave Shea and Molly Holzschlag provide an eye-opening look at the range of design methods made possible by CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). By the time you've finished perusing the volume, you'll have a new understanding of the graphically rich, fully accessible sites that CSS design facilitates. In sections on design, layout, imagery, typography, effects, and themes, Dave and Molly take you through every phase of the design process--from striking a sensible balance between text and graphics to creating eye-popping special effects (no scripting required).

Etant plutôt développeur, je recherchais un ouvrage de ce type, qui mêle aussi bien des explications sur le développement de sites Internet en utilisant les CSS que des explications sur le design : typographie, couleurs, mise en page...
Même si vous pourriez facilement trouver le code sur le site de zen garden, les explications données par Dave Shea et les autres auteurs enrichissent notablement les connaissances dans ces deux domaines : graphisme et développement.

Si vous connaissez CSS mais ne savez pas le mettre en oeuvre de
manière portable pour contourner les déficiences des butineurs ou êtes
incapables de créer des pages esthétiquement satisfaisantes...
Si vous savez apprécier une belle page, mais avez du mal à analyser le
pourquoi et le comment... Si vous êtes comme moi, pas un graphiste mais
un programmeur qui veut maîtriser la chaîne de génération de page web
de bout en bout... Ce livre vous plaira.
N'étant pas graphiste ou designer web expérimenté, je suis bien
incapable de savoir ce que ce livre peut vous apporter. A vous de
juger si ce livre est aussi pour vous.
Le design s'enseigne par l'exemple. C'est ce que ce fait ce beau
livre, il utilise des feuilles de styles du site zen garden comme
études de cas. Chaque chapitre aborde plusieurs cas mais est centré
sur un thème particulier
(typographie, mise en page, imagerie..)
Ce livre propose un grand nombre d'URL pour des compléments d'information
ce qui m'évitera dorénavant de googler à l'aveuglette.
Attention, ce n'est pas un livre de référence avec une description
détaillée de CSS, synopsis, et un index complet... Ni un livre de
trucs... Ni un livre exhaustif. Sur le site américain, il est critiqué pour
ça, mais le livre ne prétend pas être une de ces choses.

A most unique and inspirational book... 9 mai 2005
Par Thomas Duff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If you've already picked up the basics of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and want to see what is *really* possible, check out The Zen of CSS Design by Dave Shea and Molly E. Holzschlag (New Riders). This is a unique book...

Chapter List: View Source; Design; Layout; Imagery; Typography; Special Effects; Reconstruction; Closing Thoughts; Index

This book covers the topic of CSS in an unusual fashion. Dave Shea came up with the idea for a web site called csszengarden.com. The basic premise is to have a standard HTML file, complete with class and id tags that can not be changed. The goal is to then use a CSS style sheet to apply unique styles and graphics to the page, resulting in some stunning visual displays of web design. But the basic thing to remember is that the page content doesn't change, just the CSS design file that's applied to it.

Shea and Holzschlag take some of the more unique designs that have been submitted and use them to explain various CSS concepts and techniques that can be used to push your design efforts beyond the ordinary. The techniques are very well documented, as well as giving explanations on what will and will not work in the major browsers due to differences in CSS rendering. Since so much of the design is driven by choices in graphics and typeface, you'll also be exposed to quite a bit in the way of design concepts, how to choose and render text, different graphic formats, and so on. While none of the information would be considered a complete reference work on any given subject, you do have enough information to apply the technique and continue on from there if necessary.

In addition to being a book to teach technique, it also does a wonderful job in providing inspiration. If you're looking for ideas to create a site that stands out, a leisurely perusal of the pages (or of the website) will offer up endless ways to reach that goal. "You can do that?" will be a phrase that escapes from your lips on a number of occasions.

Beautiful, instructional, and inspirational... This should probably be the second or third CSS book you buy once you buy a tutorial and/or a reference guide. A recommended read...

Not exactly what I expected 13 novembre 2006
Par W. Boon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book should probably be called A Portfolio of CSS Design. It contains lots of nice pages showing examples of some lovely CSS design. However, it doesn't present enough constructive information to really help you. Tell me exactly how the page put to together rather than some obscure problem which the average CSS user is unlikely to encounter. I don't know who this book is aimed at. There's not enough in it for it to be a tutorial book and while it's nice to look at, is this any better than viewing the actual web pages on the Internet?

Let's review, one more time 8 décembre 2005
Par Vadim Sprikut - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is important to understand: this is not a book that will teach you the fundamentals of CSS. Repeat, NOT a primer on CSS. Rather, it is a book aimed at users who want to write or improve the aesthetics of their website by incorporating CSS. For that reason, it is fairly solid. Most of the premises are fairly basic and straightforward, covering the usual elements of type, layout, images, grids, etc. It is a decent resource for ideas and perhaps some alternative ways to approach building or rebuilding your site (using CSS presumably). Advanced designers would probably want to look elsewhere for ideas, theories and techniques.

If you want to understand what CSS is really about, in terms of writing it (to make your site as pretty as the examples in this book) you should turn elsewhere, like Eric A. Meyer's book on the subject. And you can easily check out the publisher's website and probably see everything you need to that is in this book.

where is the css? 4 octobre 2005
Par joji - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Like the review below, this book spends most of it's time talking about design, and really, it reads just like an art history book 101 ... So if you like reading art history books, then great! The examples that they choose are great, but they don't go into detail about how the artists actually created the site using CSS. This book, might inspire you, but I don't think it help you design sites like the ones in this book using CSS, because there is just too much fluff and not enough content. I recommend you save your money, and instead, look at the css code on the beautifule csszengarden site. I found that 10 times more useful.

Rich visuals 19 avril 2006
Par Kate - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is about extraordinary web page design. Thirty-six designs are featured from the web site Zen Garden: The Beauty of CSS Design [...], which was created by one of the authors, David Shea. The Zen Garden web site is really a great concept. Start with a simple, well-formed HTML document, coded for maximum flexibility in applying a style sheet, and then invite designers to submit a CSS document with image files to "style" that basic HTML web page. The challenge is to explore the possibilities and push the limits.

The book focuses on fundamental design concepts such as typography, color and layout. This is not a typical step-by-step book, which often has really ugly visual examples of what the code will do. Shea and Holzschlag look at CSS-formatted pages through a different lens. Each showcased project is introduced with an explanation of the design principles examined, followed by a breakdown of the elements and how they were formatted with CSS. Snippets of code are included, and you can go to the web site and download both the HTML and the CSS for that particular page if you want to follow along.

At first glance this is a visually rich book, but the screen shots are unfortunately small (they were created at 72 dpi after all) and some of the details are noticeably pixilated. Some include an expanded view of the web page, something you'll never see through the browser window, but helpful for seeing how it all fits together. Another thing I found useful was the view of all of the images used on the webpage, spread apart so I can get a good look at them. I may be stating the obvious, but what makes these designs so exceptional is the use of images. And to really appreciate the designs you need to look at them in the intended presentation-on screen. Also online is the complete style sheet for every page-you can deconstruct to your heart's content.

The authors state that the book was written for anyone with an interest in designing and developing web sites, from novice to advanced users, designers and programmers. I would argue that you have to have a pretty good grasp of CSS for most of the explanations to make sense. I'm a graphic designer struggling to learn CSS. I've given up font tags and rollover images for CSS formatting and text-based rollover effects for links, but I still use tables. I haven't yet grasped using CSS for positioning elements on the page. What I was hoping to find in this book were simple, straightforward, engaging CSS-formatted web pages. Unfortunately this wasn't the case. The featured layouts relied on a number of hacks and workarounds to get the pages to appear as intended. Is this a reflection on the state of browser compliance to web standards? For folks who enjoy the challenge of finding unique coding solutions there are plenty of clever examples in this book. However, it is definitely not a reference book. It's even hard to find anything specific through the index.

Is there any long-term value to this book? Or is it like so many other computer books that become outdated after a few years, sometimes as quickly as when a new version of software is released? The Zen of CSS Design may serve as a snapshot of the early days of CSS design and an inspiration for today.
