HTML5 for Web Designers (review)

  • Title: HTML5 for Web Designers
  • Author: Jeremy Keith
  • Paperback: 87 pages
  • Publisher: A Book Apart (2010)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-13: 978-0-9844425-0-8

This is a small book and it’s written in a very engaging and direct way.  Here’s the table of contents:

  1. A Brief History of Markup (Read this chapter online!)
  2. The Design of HTML5
  3. Rich Media
  4. Web Forms 2.0
  5. Semantics
  6. Using HTML5 Today

The author isn’t afraid to give his opinions, so keep that in mind as you read the book. Because the book is so short, it doesn’t provide a deep dive into any specific part of the HTML5 specification, but it does give a nice overview of all the new toys, and continually reminds us that an overriding goal for HTML5 was to allow web pages that work today to work in the future.

For the price I think this book is a keeper – it’s going on my desk where I can find it quickly.
