What is a good book focused on Blend? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know this is not a technical question but I am in dire need of a good book that focuses on UI using Blend.

    I have many WPF and Silverlight books but most focus on ObservableCollections, String Arrays etc. I know how to do all that but struggle to a point of misery when creating UIs.

    I would be grateful to get  recommendations on books that cover states, timelines, triggers and default control template restyling.

    Thanks All!
