They built Susy for web designers, and they contribute to Compass, Django, pip, and virtualenv, among other open-source dev tools.

A Book Apart

A Book Apart publishes highly detailed and meticulously edited examinations of single topics. We produce brief books of about 100 pages — the perfect size in terms of subject depth and coverage for topics like HTML5, CSS3, content strategy, responsive web design, and more.

The goal of every title in our catalog is to shed clear light on a tricky subject, and do it fast, so you can get back to work. Thank you for supporting our mission to provide professionals with the tools they need to move the web forward. @abookapart


Manning is a publisher of computer books for professionals. Every new book teaches us something to help us improve. How to choose the topics; how to find the right authors; how to help authors write their manuscripts; how to ensure the content is valuable and easy to learn; how to get the word out about the book. Readers can access our books before they are finished through the Manning Early Access Program, and we make our books available through Safari and iBooks. Print copies, wherever they are bought, come with free electronic versions in PDF, ePub and Kindle formats, downloadable from the Manning site. @manningbooks
