Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Project overview, part of CSS: Advanced Typographic Techniques.
For our final chapter, I wanted to take an in depth look at another Java Script…library, that can really help you out, when…you are working with more advanced CSS techniques.…And that would be Modernizr.…Now compared to some of our previous exercises, the…project for this chapter is a little bit more complex.…Let me show you the finished version of it.…We're going to be building a CSS based poster that,…sort of, is inspired by those woodblock type effects.…And this is a line from one my favorite Avett Brothers songs, All My Mistakes.…
And if I switch over to the code, and we take a closer look at the code, you can…see there is a little bit more complexity, than…some of the projects that we've been working on before.…There's certainly a lot more code going on here.…However, we're not going to build every line of this, line…by line, like we have in some of the other projects.…Rather, we're going to focus…on how Modernizr can help us create fall backs, as well as…it can help us with the loading, and managing of our page resources.…
