In 2003 Dave Shea built a website with semantic markup to show what could be accomplished with stylesheets. The markup of the website stays the same on every page. The only thing that changes the layout is the CSS(Cascading Style Sheet) file.
In 2005 Dave Shea published *The Zen of CSS Design* together with Molly Holzschlag. The book contains the best designs from the website and explains how they were built. There are a lot of good CSS techniques in this book.
If you are new to CSS, I suggest to wait a little before reading this one. This is not a book for beginners. You should at least know how to add CSS to your HTML documents, and how to use basic typography and color.
