A collection of WaSP Street Team BookmarksThe Web Standards Project’s new Street Team are running a guerrilla marketing campaign to warn retail customers about books that are outdated or teach techniques that are not considered best practice.

The WaSP street team have a PDF of the bookmark available for download (PDF, 3.4MB), so you can print it out and discreetly place it in any outdated web design books that you discover in your local bookstore.
