Tips and sources for programmers who must or want to learn graphic design.

I am a programmer, though I am quite interested in visual design, interaction design and usability.

What is a good source, perhaps a book or online guide on the subject of Graphic Design for the web?

It would preferably be based on some solid theory, not just collection of how-tos and tips and tricks.
