Item description for Web Design Flash Sites (Icons) by Julius Wiedemann...
The power of Flash...
Many of the web's most eye-popping sites are created using Flash, a program which allows for total creative freedom and maximum interactivity. In its early years, Flash was used mostly for artistic and design sites, but more recently large corporations---even Citibank---have turned to Flash. This guide rounds up the very best and most innovative sites using 100% Flash navigation, including Nike, Adidas, Bacardi, Shrek, Nintendo, Playstation, Ford, and Honda. Also featured are two case studies and an introduction by Rob Ford, the creator of Favorite Website Awards.

Reviews - What do customers think about Web Design Flash Sites (Icons)?
an ok book Aug 28, 2007
it's a decent book with some decent examples of websites and web design. definitely a bit out-dated since some of the websites described are no longer working and the info is well... informational in terms of a brief history and such with flash but that's about it. if it had more examples (good examples) of web design with flash as the title suggests, then maybe i would've given more stars. otherwise, this book is barely mediocre.
It's illustrative Feb 1, 2007
I think is basic but you get a good reference for your money it could be better, but maybe the next time
Great book and format Jan 2, 2007
Great book and a nice compact format. Not a lot of text but visuals are why you would buy this book.
If you're a Web designer, this is a MUST Jul 12, 2006
The Taschen's Icons Web design collection, (4) as far as I know and own (I hope they'll release more), is a helpful tool for designer who wants to see the growing world of the fully detailed sites.
if you want to see and check not only the best but the lines of design and the progress of the entertainment evolution in user's interactive experience, you just have to check them.
they are divided in types, products and function.
the quality of the images are the best. printed in glasse in glossy ink. fancy for collectors.
Illegible Jul 7, 2006
I just received this book today in the mail and have to say that I am sorely disappointed! The book is smaller than I had anticipated - about 5 1/2" x 7 3/4". When I opened the book, I was very dismayed to find that I could not read it. Many of the pages are written in a foreign language, but more than that, the print is so tiny that a magnifying glass is necessary to be able to ready anything other than page titles.
To be fair, the book is filled with images of various web pages. However, without being able to read the text, I'm not sure the pictures alone are helpful!
Again, I am highly disappointed. This is the first book I've purchased that I've been this unhappy with.
