Deal of the week: Full Smashing Library.

Smashing Magazine always produces high-quality articles, loved by designers and developers alike. And that same quality carries over to their awesome eBooks.

The Smashing Library is a collection of more than 60 eBooks that is continually being updated; it’s an amazing resource for web design newbies, and old-hands alike. And with each book averaging 175 pages, it’s sure to keep you busy learning for a whole year.

So we’re delighted that, due to huge demand, our sister-site,, has brought back its Smashing Library deal. For just $45 you get access to the whole of the Smashing Library, plus free updates for a whole year. That’s around $0.12 per day!

Bought this offer last time? No problem, even customers who grabbed this great deal last year can extend their incredibly cheap access simply by taking up the deal again.

And previous customers won’t be disappointed, because even if you did manage to work your way through the entire library in 12 months, there are 24 new eBooks added each year.

The Smashing Library features some of the top releases on the Web, including “Making it Right” by Rian van der Merwe which recently became the #1 Best Seller in 3 categories on Amazon and “The Digital Adaptation” by Paul Boag. The library even includes eBooks of some of Smashing Magazine’s most popular print books.

The library covers everything from coding to UX design, Mobile to WordPress, freelancing, content strategy, and a lot more besides. It’s a great way to ensure that your professional know-how is as comprehensive as possible.

And if by some quirk you find a topic missing, as a Smashing Library member you’ll have opportunities to vote on upcoming titles, ensuring that your learning progresses exactly as you want it to.

"Gladly I stumbled upon this before buying separate ebooks on Itunes. I love the style of these books, now I just need more time to read…" - M. Jean-Joseph

"This is indeed a great offer if you're thinking about purchasing several books and if you want to keep up with current developments. Very curious about what's yet to come this year!" - Joachim

"I recently received 'The Mobile Book.' That was awesome and I hope this will be 38X awesome. Worth reading." - Erik Royall

"At last the bible for mobile design is here. Everyone in the studio is fighting for their turn, this will be an invaluable resource. Thank you, Smashing Mag!" - Rob

This fantastic year-long access to Smashing Library normally retails at $99, but for a limited time you can get a full subscription for 1 year, including free updates, for just $45. That’s more than 50% off!
