Transcending CSS

In bookstores is a fantastic book written by Andy Clarke entitled "Transcending CSS: The Fine Art of Web Design". It approaches the use of CSS from a designer's perspective, which is an exciting new concept. His explanation of proper structural mark-up is easy to understand, utilizing a graphical approach. The book also has a very good section on designing web pages using the grid as a basic guideline. By laying grids over screen shots of beautifully designed sites it illustrates how some designers use the grid to get unique results.
