5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, timely and practical too, Sept. 28 2003
alexander (New Gloucester, Maine) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Grids for the Internet and Other Digital Media (Paperback)
Another superb book by Götz. Although the title is a tad dry and does not suggest that the book will appeal to the same wide audience as Type for the Internet, in fact 'Grids' is just as fascinating and timely. Gotz describes how websites (and other browser-read creations) should be laid out for maximum effectiveness. Her analysis is practical and how-to, leading from the apparently obvious problem of landscape layout , the limits of legibility on screen, to the more elaborate problems of dynamic and interactive pages. But the very practicality of Gotz's approach, and her sharp focus, only make it doubly clear how our whole philosophic engagement with information is radically changed by the new technologies. Gotz does not resist the temptation to point at some of the larger issues by truffling her boook with witty quotations and maxims from the great savants, all presented with a layout full of panache.
