  • You can save 80% off their regular prices,
  • You get immediate access to all eBooks,
  • Our eBooks work on all eBook readers and each is available in PDF, ePUB and Kindle,

The library gives you exclusive access to new releases such as Making It Right5, which became the #1 bestseller in 3 categories on Amazon, Apps For All6 by Heydon Pickering and of course our Smashing Books7. All eBooks are DRM-free, which means they never expire, and there’s no download limit.

    Just curiosity, I was about to buy some UX Design eBooks from Amazon , but notice that the price there is higher than the list above ($4.99 -> $6.99), while some, like Smashing Book #3 | Redesign The Web, are lower ( $19.90 -> $11.99 / was $14.90) Why was that ? :)

    FYI, you can downoad PDFs to your iPad or Kindle using the Send To Kindle app.
    (It’s one of the few ways I know of to get a PDF onto an iPad).

    Once you install the app you can right-click and choose SEND TO KINDLE. Really sweet.

    Are you missing the word “if” from the second paragraph?

    You are interested in a custom, corporate or educational offer

      It’s a question, not a statement. Read the full sentence, then it’ll make sense.

      “You are interested in a custom, corporate or educational offer for any of our eBook publications? “

    I currently have a NOOK Color for reading and purchasing the majority of my eBooks, I was wondering about your e pub format. Will I be able to upload it to my nook and be able to see the thumb nail image in my library? When I upload regular PDF files to my device it usually displays a gray box with the title in white letters. Should I look for your books through Barns & Noble instead?

    Thank you & God Bless.

    I don’t mind buying an ebook such as the ones shown on this page for WordPress. However what stops me dead in my tracks is that there is no preview of the contents. And I won’t buy something blindly no matter what the cost.

      “If possible, please make an “everything” bundle, thanks.”

      I guess the new subscription is exactly that… by my rough math, all the above bundles together cost about $184 (rounded up to nearest dollar for each bundle), but the annual subscription includes all that plus upcoming books for a year for $99, or $89 right now. Not bad for all this stuff, and no DRM, so you can put them on any platform. This is not my endorsement or free advertisement, I am just crunching the simple numbers. You still save money even if you only want the books available in the library right now.

    There is no specific eBook for psd to html at the moment. But closest to this is our HTML essentials eBook.

    I’ve just read the smashing ebook ‘produce an ebook with apple pages’. It interesting to see you using Apple Pages and not iBook Author. Was iBook Author around at the time of your evaluation? Have you looked at this application since writing the ebook?

    I would be interested to hear you views and constructive comparison of the two applications.

      Hi David!

      We actually no longer use Apple Pages or iBook Author for our eBook production, but a completely new method that throws less errors across all platforms.

    I’d like to buy the ebooks. But I have a question: will I be losing too much for reading the books in black and white (I have a Kindle Touch)? I understand that color is important in design books.

    Hello there,

    I am really in love with your site and your library. But to find the Login to view/download my books is really a big big challenge and is starting to drive me mad.
    Been searching for minutes now and still couldn´t find the Login button. Please help me and please fix this. I have read so much about userfriendliness in your books…

    One more thing – I tried to contact you via the contact form… first error message “Your message is too long”… second error message “Entered value in field “Message” is containing invalid characters.” Arrrgghhhh

    But nonetheless – I am in love with your work!

    Kind regards and thanks in advance,

    Hannes

    Where did you hide the login for library members? Not impressed with your redesign, confusing and scrappy. Like when I select the library tab on the left why doesn’t it stay select to indicate I’m in the library – pretty basic stuff.

    I agree with all the commenters who have complained about the hidden login button. I think I get to it through the store, but I only know how to get there by typing in the URL. wtf. Add a login button to the top right of every screen please!! (or at least on the library page!)

    Hello,

    I’m using an iPad and just want to make sure: will the PDF files keep all the format and layout as in the printed books?

    I have some ebooks bought from amazon (kindle format) and it just only have text + some photos. But not in a beautiful layout.

    I hope all the PDF files is a beautiful as in the printed ebooks.

    Thanks!

      Hi Hieu, as for the Smashing Books #1 – #4 as well as for the Mobile Book, the layout of the pdf-files is the same as in the printed books. For Kindle and epub-files however, they are designed for reflowable content, just to make sure you can read them on every reader out there. :)
