2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Danita Reynolds on March 19, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is jam packed with website home page eye-candy. Most of the screen shots are of website home pages but there are a few pages that dive a bit deeper into some sites. This book isn't about the inner workings of websites but more like a visual reference book for design layout, color combinations, type treatment and image treatment. All sites in this book have their URL posted with their screen shot so you can dive in deeper if you wish. The bonus DVD contains 6 interviews from 6 different countries each talking about different topics. It is interesting but not terribly exciting.

If you are a visual communication designer this book would be an added bonus for your reference shelf.

Great Book! If you need any type of inspiration this is the book to have. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the DVD got a little boring after a while.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By W Boudville HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 8, 2006
Format: Paperback
The book has a nice coverage of websites in many languages. This is one of its main virtues. For English speakers, it is sometimes easy to forget that there is a lot of web designing going on elsewhere. Because English still dominates the web, and even keeping track of the English language websites is formidable.

Wiedemann picks from many sites, and you may be able to get inspiration. But not simply by merely looking at the screen shots in the book. While pretty, they should be regarded as jumping off points, for you to delve into those sites.

Format: Paperback
This book is excellent. Websites are in constant change of content and layout and OF COURSE webdesign-targeted books quickly tend to get outdated but for me this book is very useful since I am writing my essay on webdesign for my graduation.
And the book is also a good inspiration reference. Buy it, you won't regret it.
