Law School Project: 2012 Faculty Reading

In the course of my day job I don't design a lot of websites from whole cloth, but one exception is the microsite I build for our faculty's reading recommendations each year. I enjoy these projects, as they give me a chance to experiment with new techniques (this year's was an experiment in responsive design), but this was the fourth year I've built one, and it's become a challenge to think up new ways to display what is basically just a long list. So unlike past years, where I organized the list by faculty member, this year I chose to organize it by the books themselves. This wound up being trickier than I anticipated, since several faculty members had actually chosen the same book to recommend, but I think the final product came out pretty well.
