We’re partnering once again with the awesome folks at SitePoint to bring you another great giveaway for one of their latest books.

The book this time is called Fancy Form Design and it guides you through the creation of beautiful forms for your websites.

Forms need not be ugly, they can be beautiful, too, and their coding can now be hassle free.

We will give away a total of 5 copies of the book, and the contest will run for a week, with the results announced on December 1st.

To get a chance to win, please follow the guidelines for participation after the jump.

Fancy Form Design is a complete, step-by-step guide to creating beautiful web forms that are aesthetically pleasing, highly functional, and compatible across all major browsers.

All aspects of stunning form creation are covered in this book—from layout and composition through to best-practice CSS and HTML—topped off with a touch of JavaScript sparkle!

  • Plan your design with prototyping, visitor profiles, and use cases
  • Use grids, color, typography, icons, and texture in your design
  • Code with usable, accessible, and meaningful markup
  • Style with proven CSS tricks and techniques
  • Give your forms the “wow” factor with JavaScript
