There’s a never ending supply of information out there for us web designers. If there’s something we need to learn, we can find it in one form or another. Sometimes it may be on a blog or it could be in a book.
There are a multitude of books (whether in digital format or print) that cover every possible aspect of web design, each one is unique and offers a personalized opportunity for the author to both educate, inspire, and guide the reader through there knowledge. In this post rather than offer all of my favorite web design books, I have listed 12 books that I have either downloaded and read (or at least scanned through), or I have bookmarked with the whole-hearted intention of eventually reading it (Ruby Best Practices), and the best thing of all? All of these books are completely FREE, in digital format anyway (PDF or HTML). I have not offered a critique of each book, as I feel that would not be fair on the author. If someone spends so much of there valuable time (in some cases months and months) and writes an entire book on web design, in my eyes they deserve only praise and appreciation.
A few months ago we published a popular article called 12 Useful and Free Downloadable Web Design Books , and the positive response we received from our readers was phenomenal. But, just as there is with most things, there is always room for improvement. With the help of readers and authors we have discovered another 9 free web design books we felt were worthy enough to bring to your attention, you will find these book below.
