The Pineapple Thief
A lovingly crafted site with a huge background image, and some really interesting navigation. The typography used in headings and the navigation bar works really well, and adds flair to the design.
My only complaint would be that the text used in the main body areas is a little difficult to read. Other than that, a great example of creative background usage.
