Copertina rigida7.7 x 10.0 in.3.61 lb640 pagine50Edizione: Francese, Inglese, Tedesco Disponibilità: Disponibile
Dal suo debutto nel 1990, Internet ha caricato oltre un miliardo di pagine web, ma le interfacce non sono sempre state eleganti. In questo tour visivo attraverso la storia, ripercorriamo i primissimi esempi di ciò che oggi diamo per scontato: il primo sito web per l’utilizzo di audio surround, la prima funzione "carica la tua foto", la prima pagina simile a YouTube. Completo di schede anno per anno, approfondimenti di Google e commenti degli stessi creatori.

Web Design. The Evolution of the Digital World 1990–Today


When the World Went Digital

A sweeping reference work of the websites that paved the pixelated way

The last three decades have marked an era of technological upheaval as frenetic and groundbreaking as there ever has been. From early desktop computers and mobile phones to virtual reality: the web is now virtually inseparable from all facets of human interaction and daily life. But it wasn’t always funny cat videos and sleek interfaces.

This collection is a visual journey through time, gathering the very earliest examples of what we today take for granted: the first website to use surround sound, the first drag-and-drop navigation, the first page-turn effect, the first website to use seamless video integration, the first viral site, the first parallax website, the first ‘upload-your-face’ website, the first site to incorporate a mobile phone, the first ever YouTube-like “website”, and many more.

It gathers more than 200 websites, and each comes with quotes and insights from the creators themselves—an invaluable peek into the minds of pioneers who paved the pixelized way for many to follow, including Jonathan Gay (Flash), Gabo Mendoza (Gabocorp), Yugo Nakamura (Yugop), Peter Van Den Wyngaert (NRG.BE), Joshua Davis (Praystation), and Eric Jordan (2Advanced).

This comprehensive visual history gathers 21 chapters that detail, for every year since 1998, the best websites and examples of hardware used at the time, and explore how user experience, usability, and technological milestones have influenced the development of the internet we use today. Year-by-year factsheets and smart Google insights orient the reader through major developments across such categories as world news headlines, highest grossing films, new soft and hardware, greatest website traffic, and many more.

For many, this collection will offer a virtual trip down nostalgia lane—but all generations will find a sweeping reference work as well as a celebration of how the earliest creative minds came to define the web, and eventually the world, as we know it.

Historisches Zeugnis

Daria,27 dicembre 2021
Dieses Buch werde ich einst aus meinem Bücherregal ziehen, um meinen ungläubigen Enkeln zu zeigen, wie das Internet vor ihrer Zeit aussah. Schöne Beispiele von der Geburt des Webdesign. Manche einfach interessant, andere auch zum lachen und einige auch zum gruseln. Must Have für jedes private Archiv!

Schwer, umfassend, informativ

Michael,27 ottobre 2021
Kann man die Geschichte des WWW in einem Buch darstellen? Ja! Dieses Buch ist der Beweis dafür. Auf über 600 Seiten kann man wirklich alles von den bescheidenen Anfängen in 1990 bis zu den neueren Entwicklungen in 2018 nachlesen und - dank vieler Screenshots - auch betrachten.

Recommended for bloggers.

Adam M.,4 novembre 2021
As a blogger, I am very interested in the history of the Internet and its prospects. I know that there is still a lot to achieve in this field. I bought the item as an inspiration. Taschen didn't let me down as usual. I recommend the book to bloggers to have "the big picture" of what is happening in the virtual world and try to look at their activities from a broad perspective. After reading this book, I have no doubt that every blogger can write their own chapter in the history of the Internet.

Hard to believe that you can be nostalgic about computers, but this book brought back many happy and some not so happy memories.

Great addition to my library

I have been searching for a long time for a detailed book about this topic (webdesign in the last 30 years). This book is something I was looking for.
