The new Jeffery Veen book "The Art and Science of Web Design" is a must read, especially if you are new to the field. Veen is one of the people who actually "gets" that a web designer is not a back end nor a graphics person, but something in between. Lots of history and perspective in there for you too. I would also recommend some books on data and information structuring. When all is said and done, you BUILD web sites in photoshop and ASP (or whatever), but you DESIGN them in your mind and on paper and in collaborative work groups. Try these: The Visual Display of Quantitative Information, Visual Explanations and Envisioning Information by Edward Tufte Experiences in Visual Thinking - McKim The 21st Century Intranet - Jennifer Stone Gonzales Data Modeling for Information Professionals - Bob Schmidt Designing Web Usability - Jakob Nielsen Information Design - Robert Jacobson Design of Everyday Things - Donald Norman How to use your eyes - James Belkins .... read all or some of them, then forget you did, pull out some paper and pencils and start designing! -- Christopher Orth - Webmaster Casey Family Programs - -----Original Message----- From: Marcia [mailto:marciaanddarin at yahoo.com] Sent: Saturday, March 17, 2001 10:56 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Web Design Books or Magazines Hi I first want to thank you all for sending me links to web sites to learn from :) I would like to ask one more question(I promise last one).
