The Smashing Book: Vote For Topics Now!

The Smashing Book project is coming along. At the end of February we announced our most interesting (and important) project for 2009: “The Smashing Book,” a smashingly written, beautifully designed and professionally printed book. We asked for your opinion about what the topics of the book should be, your wishes and ideas, and we were completely overwhelmed with the huge amount of great ideas and suggestions in our Smashing Book Forum. We express sincere gratitude to all those who helped us and discussed various ideas in the forum.

The book will definitely cover the following topics: the Smashing Magazine story, prototyping and wireframing, typography guide, color theory and practical examples, usability, performance optimization and business and freelancing guide (starting your own business).

Of course, this isn't everything. Many more topics can be covered in the book, and you can decide what topics should be covered in the book. Please vote in the poll below!

We took some time to go through all the suggestions and ideas, analyze them, find common interests and determine what you expect from the book and how it should look to meet your expectations. And now it's time to get a little bit more concrete in the second round of the Smashing Book project.

The Smashing Book: Join In!

No, we're not giving anything away in this post. Instead, we've got some work to do, and we need you to play an important role in it. Our most interesting (and important) project for 2009 is something we are modestly calling "The Smashing Book": a smashingly written, beautifully designed and professionally printed book. It will be created by and for the Web design community. Four key decisions have already been made: the book's title will be "The Smashing Book"; it will be a paperback; the price is fixed, as is the release date, which is early September 2009.

The Smashing Book

We want to create a totally unique and exciting book, full of insightful and useful articles; a book that contains only articles that a reader of Smashing Magazine would really want to read. No fluff, no cruft, just hearty meat and potatoes content.

To achieve this, we need the help of our community: your help. And what could be better than working on this important project together with our readers? If you want to participate in our project, please visit the forum (the registration is required for replies) and help in any of the following ways.
