Item description for 72 dpi by Robert Klanten...

72 dpi is our collection of revolutionary web designs in book form. The Internets rapid development constantly demands new, ingenious web designs that bind the user to the website for as long as possible in order to provide him/ her with contents and information. Meaning that web site designers always have to develop new, fresh graphic solutions to transport the most diverse contents. What they come up with is then transported via the WWW and appears in 72 dots per inch resolution (72 dpi) on a computer monitor. This book shows a selection of the most successful solutions from all parts of the world appropriately presented in the same landscape format as a monitor. Since colours are assembled differently for the internet ( RGB) than are reproducible in the traditional printing process (CMYK), costly print-processing will be used for 72 dpi - making nearly perfect colour reproduction of web designs possible in a book for the first time. In order to give a most authentic lodown of what state-of-the-art web design is all about , 72dpi includes twenty texts on relevant aspects, written by experts like Matt Owens, David Lindermann, Josh Davies and PlanetPixel. Co-editors Vicky Tiegelkamp and Jan Rikus Hillmann from famous De:Bug magazine are responsible for the giving.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about 72 dpi?

Two ways to see this book...  Aug 10, 2001
Either you see it from a dry-to-the-bone practical angle, and the book comes up short. If you use it to get more insight in standard user interface and navigation structures, you will not find it. This book is not about defining the 'ideal' navigation or garanteed successful interface. Quite the opposite.

See, here is another approach to this thing called the web: what if you do not assume your user/visitor to be an idiot? What if the actual concept of using a website is part of the content and experience the designer wants you to have? It will result in some of the work shown in this publication. Where the user is not taken by the hand and force-fed how to use an interface.

You can argue if this is needed, or if this approach even has a contribution to the world of internet. I for one think it has. The web is a means to exchange ideas and thoughts, just as it is a communication tool for business and information. There is simply not one truth or one rule to be followed. And if you do not see the relevance of experiment in how to communicate, use the book to see just where the usability goes overboard, and learn from that :-) But it never hurts to open your mind/eyes to the new and unexpected, even if it does not make immediate sense or logic. This book serves to do just that.
This book is horrible  May 21, 2001
I can find only one use for this book. It is an excellent example of what NOT to do when designing user interfaces. These are some of the most unusable interfaces I have seen to date.

Also, the only skill of the designers display is their ability to over use popular, gimmicky, current design trends. There is no originality displayed in the designs and there is no forethought in UI design and layout.

Pixel Perfect  Feb 3, 2001
The best survey of "interesting and inspiring" websites period. I'm going to be giving it to friends who are desigers for their birthdays this year. It shows sites which are pushing technology, not being pushed by it. However, this book may make working at a large .com more difficult for a designer.

Be warned.
