What People Are Saying

Chris Coyier can teach you how to use one of the most powerful technologies for images on the web: SVG. This small book covers a ton of ground—accessibility, animation, icon systems, optimization, and more—making it a vital part of any web developer’s ongoing education.
Sarah Drasner, Manager, UX Design and Engineering at Trulia
A quick, useful, and fun read. Chris’s breezy exposition style makes this guide to using SVG in the real world, from embedding to authoring to optimizing, feel like a friendly conversation.
Tab Atkins-Bittner, Web Standards Hacker at Google
This book will teach you everything you need to know about using SVG today, in real projects of all sizes. Instead of being a dry syntax reference, it teaches you the bits you actually need, which would otherwise take years of experience to discover. Even better, everything is presented in a funny, conversational tone and is concise enough to be read during a (domestic!) plane ride.
Lea Verou, Author of CSS Secrets
