A Practical Guide to Designing for the Web is a very compact and concise (only 261 pages) technical guide for web designing based on the graphic design principles. The whole book was divided into 5 big parts: Getting Started, Research, Typography, Color, and Layout.

It is important to note that, this book is intended to teach web designers the whole framework of website design, but only to a point, rather than the every technological detail. As a consequence, what’s more important is the fundamental parts which are more suitable for beginners with limited reference value.
