A Bookshelf of Web Design Knowledge on a Single CD: O'Reilly Releases "The Web Design CD Bookshelf"

Press release: January 10, 2002

Sebastopol, CA--What could be more natural for a web designer than to have all the reference material he or she will possibly need in a handy online reference? As web designers know, web design has become a complex art requiring knowledge of HTML, CSS, site design, graphics, interactivity, and more. The Web Design CD Bookshelf (US $79.95) is a complete repository of all the information they will need to get their job done: an up-to-date, exhaustive reference library on a single CD. With this latest addition to O'Reilly's bestselling CD Bookshelf series, web designers will never need to leave their computers again--unless they want to.

The Web Design CD Bookshelf delivers the information power of six O'Reilly Animal Guides that web designers turn to most frequently. Featuring the portability and ease of use that has come to be associated with this series, this CD provides online access to six popular books, while taking up less than two inches of shelf space. Included on the CD are unabridged versions of these titles:

As a bonus, The Web Design CD Bookshelf also includes the new paperback version of Web Design in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition.

Formatted in HTML, The Web Design CD Bookshelf can be read by any web browser. More than 3000 pages of O'Reilly reference guides and tutorials are fully searchable and cross-referenced with an index for each book and a master index for the entire collection. When purchased separately, the six books would retail for $204.70, but The Web Design CD Bookshelf retails for only $79.95.
