    The Difference Between Pretty and Simply Stunning

    Not to blow our own trumpet (but most of you know anyway), earlier this year we published a pretty awesome book. Well, I think ALL our books are awesome, so let’s say this book is super awesome. You’d know it as The Principles of Beautiful Web Design written by Jason ‘the designer man’ Beaird...

    No matter how hard we tried, we couldn’t improve on Jason’s magnificent authoring job, so we’ve decided to do something a little different. I’d like to introduce you to...

    The Principles of Beautiful Web Design – Hardcover Signature Edition



    Yep, that’s right: this brilliant book is being released in super-durable and simply gorgeous hardcover format…

    Don’t bother looking in your local bookstore or Amazon -- these puppies are exclusive to sitepoint.com, and they’ll hit our warehouse on December 17.

    There are only 1000 signature editions arriving, and we’re giving you, the SitePoint faithful, a chance to get in first!

    Place your order before the 17th and it’ll be shipped the second the books arrive. The sooner you order, the more cash you’ll save...

    Here’s how it’ll work:

    • Order by December 3 and pay only US $39.95 (save 20%)
    • Order by December 16 pay only US $44.95 (save 10%)
    • Or you can pay the full price from December 17 onwards of US $49.95 (and save nothing!)

    To sweeten the deal, you’ll also get a FREE PDF copy of the book (worth $29.95) and a FREE color reference card (worth $9.95) with every order.

    Now I don’t need to convince anyone how good this book is -- the 10,000 copies we sold in the first month are proof enough. Or perhaps the hundreds of positive reviews from people like you tell the story. There’s no denying it, this book rocks!

    Here’s my favourite customer quote: “The chapter on color is worth the full cost of the book but then the rest is just icing. Really, really good icing.” Matt Gromes.

    Perfect for your coffee table, or to replace your existing overworked copy, this signature edition also makes the ideal gift for a friend or colleague.

    Be a part of SitePoint history by owning an exclusive copy of our first-ever hardcover book.

    Secure your copy now!

    Now... to find someone nice enough to buy me one for Christmas

    Yeah, it´s a great book, I used it a lot when creating my own site which the author Jason saw and liked, so that´s the best review I could ever have - buy it !!!!

    At this stage we're keeping this hardcover edition exclusive to sitepoint.com, I'm sure we'll post some pictures when we get our copies but you'll only find the soft cover in bookstores.

    Hey, I was the first to post 'I ordered it', so I'd better be first to receive it
    Besides, seeing as I entered the CSS contest when the original book came out - I should definitely be first in line !
