/. has published a review of a book that might be worth a read for
designing user interfaces (for whoever works on the client):
*User Interface Design for Programmers*
*author* Joel Spolsky
*pages* 144
*publisher* Apress
*rating* 8
*reviewer* Ellen
*ISBN* 1893115941
*summary* Aimed at programmers who don't know much about user interface
design and think it is something to fear, Joel provides a great primer,
with some entertaining and informative examples of good and bad design
implementations, including some of the thought process behind the
decisions. He feels that programmers fear design because it is a
creative process rather than a logical one and shows that the basic
principles of good user interface design are logical and not based on
some mysterious indefinable magic.

Otherwise, the books of Tufte seem quite interesting:
 Envisionning Information

Those books are quite expensive. I don't know if there is a way to rent
