15 Books For Beginners To Learn Web Design

Mon, 11/16/2009 - 15:02 — julie

Around 5 years ago, I learn’t how to build websites by starting with simple HTML in notepad. I then purchased a book that taught me more about HTML. I thourght wow, if I can create this, think of all the possibilities. But my possibilities needed to be styled in a way that looked good.

So I went out and purchased a book on CSS that taught me how to make my web pages look half decent. I then went on to buy a book about PHP and MySQL. But I first got into web design using a simple book that I purchased down the local book store. Today I have wrapped up a selection of 15 top books for beginners looking to get into web design and learn how to create beautiful websites.
