Looking back at my submission from December 2004, I feel equal measures of pride and embarrassment. It was ambition fulfilled to be entry number 142 in the gallery but my poor typography and over reliance on image replacement says a lot about how I designed back then.
I was even more proud to have my 3D graphic representation of the CSS Zen Garden’s XHTML structure printed in Dave and Molly’s book. I still keep a (signed) copy of that book on my bookcase next to the Transcending CSS it inspired.
I can’t tell you how pleased I am to see the The CSS Zen Garden make a comeback. I hope it inspires this generation of designers and developers like it inspired me.
