About A Book Apart

Web design is about multi-disciplinary mastery and laser focus, and that’s the thinking behind our brief books for people who make websites. We cover the emerging and essential topics in web design and development with style, clarity, and, above all, brevity—because working designer-developers can’t afford to waste time.

The goal of every title in our catalog is to shed clear light on a tricky subject, and do it fast, so you can get back to work. Thank you for supporting our mission to provide professionals with the tools they need to move the web forward.


The text is set in Expo Serif Pro by Mark Jamra, and Skolar Sans by David Březina and Sláva Jevčinová. Headlines and cover are set in Titling Gothic by David Berlow.
