Win a copy of “The Book of CSS3”

Today we have another awesome giveaway for all WDD readers where you can win 1 of 5 copies being given away of The Book of CSS3

As you know, CSS3 is the technology behind most of the eye-catching visuals you see on the Web today, but the official documentation can be dry and hard to follow and browser implementations are scattershot at best.

This is where Peter Gasston’s latest book can come in really handy. The Book of CSS3 translates the dense technical language of the CSS3 specification into plain English and shows you what CSS3 can do right now, in all major browsers.

It contains real-world examples and a focus on the principles of good design, it extends your CSS skills, helping you transform ordinary markup into stunning, richly-styled web pages.

Read on for more details about the book and info on how to participate…


You’ll master the latest cutting-edge CSS3 features and learn how to:

  • Stylize text with fully customizable outlines, drop shadows, and other effects
  • Create, position, and resize background images on the fly
  • Spice up static web pages with event-driven transitions and animations
  • Apply 2D and 3D transformations to text and images
  • Use linear and radial gradients to create smooth color transitions
  • Tailor a website’s appearance to smartphones and other devices

A companion website includes up-to-date browser compatibility charts and live CSS3 examples for you to explore. For more info, see the Table of contents and you can also visit the official book page: Book of CSS3



“The Book of CSS3 “is a book you more than likely should have, even if you think you already have a pretty good handle on everything CSS.”456 Berea Street

“I use a lot of CSS3 to control backgrounds and box elements, but there are entire sections of the CSS3 spec that I never really appreciated until I read this book.” Designorati

“This book is an absolutely fantastic resource for developers and serious designers and I would recommend a full read of the content.” Visual Swirl Design Resources

    And the Lord spake, saying, First shalt thou take out the Holy Book of CSS3. Then, shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor either count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out! Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Book of CSS3 towards thy website, who, being naughty in my sight, shall love it.Amen.——-Courtesy of Monty Python with some hacks, I mean tweaks! ;o)

    CSS3 is amazing!
    Every day I discover new techniques that can make the web a bit brighter. I have greatly benefited from reading blogs such as this one. From making cross-browser triangles to animating a button’s hover effect, CSS just keeps getting better.

    So I Thank you for your contribution to modern web design!

    I met CSS when it was all gangly and newish, and I kind of ignored it because I’d been going out with XHTML for so long and didn’t want to hurt its feelings. But I found a way to part with XHTML on friendly terms, and started spending lots more time with CSS.

    I think we’ve both matured. And now CSS has shown up with a whole new look; hey, I’m willing to dive in and get hooked all over again.
