Grid Layout in Css : Interface Layout for the Web (Paperback) (Eric A. Meyer)
about this item
For as long as CSS has existed, it’s had a layout-shaped hole at its center. Designers have bent other features to help fill that hole, most notably float and clear, but nothing quite does the job—until now. With this practical book, you’ll learn how to use grid layout, a generalized layout system that enables you to lay out pieces of your design independently of their document source order.
Author Eric A. Meyer shows you how to use CSS grid layout in your design, whether you want to overlap pieces of the layout, define repeating patterns of grid lines, attach elements to those grid lines, and even nest grids inside grids. With its emphasis on rows and columns, grid layout might at first feel like a return to table layout, but there’s far more to grid layout than tables.
