I don't think I remember seeing any posts/threads on this book, and it
amazes me. I finally made it to the last page a couple of days ago,
and even though I was already familiar with a large chunk of the
concepts discussed in it, I am in awe of how gracefully and succinctly
the authors presented each one.
The book covers 100 principles that apply across various desgn
disciplines. Every principle is presented in a 2-page spread. The
first page names the concept, summarizes, describes examples, and
offers advice on when and how to apply it. The second page shows how
it was applied to example designs.
This book is absolutely beautiful. Stunning, really. And I don't think
I've ever said this about a book before. The design and the content
are both so well done that I just can't believe this book isn't
considered one of the bibles of interaction design.
Has anyone else read this? I realize it's been out for quite a while,
so it may not be news to anyone. I just wanted to put a spotllight on
it for those who haven't heard about it.
