I think there is no such book. Maybe the Python Cookbook comes near.

webapps: I use django, other use turbogears, other even different stuff...
There are several books about e.g. django. It would be hard to
put all the magic of all web apps into one chapter.

GUI-apps: You can use tkinter, qt or gtk.... again it would be hard
to put something useable into one chapter.
