News & Opinion: Congrats to the Cult!

For guys looking for new hairstyle ideas, check out The Cult of iPod and The Cult of Mac. The Cult of iPod recently won a design award for its brilliant and cutting-edge style. It's full-color with rounded edges and a great feel (I love the design! It's very Apple-esque).
The designer of the book is Derek Yee of Octopod Studios; the award was for the Editorial category in STEP magazine (you can check it out in their March/April 2006 issue or check it out here).
Here's what Bill Pollock, founder of No Starch Press (the book's publisher) had to say,
You dont hear about many computer books being recognized for outstanding design achievement, but its consistent with our desire to bring something new to the table and always push the envelope. We work with authors who have something interesting and different to say, and we like the design of their books to reflect that attitude. Derek has always known just how to capture it.

Way to go Derek Yee, Leander Kahney and No Starch Press! Congratulations.
