dust or magic
This is a great book about multimedia design. It provides an insightful history of this field and provides real world examples of what works, and more importantly, why.
The book is also a great source of examples of successful multimedia - including 'Ceremony of Innocence' and 'The Book of Lulu'. Bob's site also name checks Peter Small whose lingo books have been pretty influential.
Bob Hughes started out as a calligrapher, was previously a creative director and having developed various multimedia applications is now a consultant who is also involved in the MA Electronic Media course at Oxford Brookes in the UK.
