There is this book I've been reading a while ago called 'The Web Designer's Idea Book Volume 2' that I want to talk about in today's post. As the title says, it's the 2nd edition. I didn't read the 1st edition though, so I can't really compare, but I did enjoy this edition. Secondly, I should also mention that this book has been published a while ago, months ago actually.
