That would not make heaps of errors within artists and printers who came to the web and to understand what is web design and interface design, I recommend the following books in the order in which I read them. I read a lot of literature, but these are the most worthwhile.
1. Steve Krug "Web design or don't make me think"
2. Jakob Nielsen "Web-design"
3. Donald Norman "Design of everyday things"
4. JEF Raskin, "Interface"
5. Alan Cooper "the mental hospital in the hands of patients"
And of course not to forget about Mandership

, just do not try them in a portfolio to lay down then), read everything you find about modular grid (1
, etc.) and regularly visit Dribbble
