Front-end Style Guides (and Articles that I liked: Fri., Nov. 22)

I just bought this book this week, and it is excellent. It may have been one of the best spent $3.
“A Pocket Guide to Front-end Style Guides.” by Anna Debenham

Quote from the book:

“Where front-end style guides excel is in encouraging collaboration between designers and developers. I love sitting down with designers and going through the guide, making tweaks straight in the CSS with them. It saves a lot of time (and sanity) that I used to spend going back and forth between mock-ups and live sites, and it also prompts some great conversations about responsive design.”

She gives a lot of examples of style guides

I’ve been posting links that I liked at Posterous (RIP) and then my tumblr blog. Here are the week worth of links:
