Overview


Edward Tufte's new book, Envisioning Information, is a stunning display of the classics of information design, combined with close analysis of design strategies that produce excellence in information displays. Six-color printing is used throughout, and, for the chapter on color and information, twelve-color printing. Photography, color reproduction techniques, typography, paper, printing, and binding, are all of the highest quality.

Envisioning Information shows maps, charts, scientific visualizations, diagrams, statistical graphics and tables, stereo photographs, guidebooks, courtroom exhibits, computer screens, timetables, a pop-up, and many other wonderful displays of information. The book, with more than 400 illustrations, provides practical advice about how to explain complex material by visual means, and uses extraordinary examples to illustrate the fundamental principles of information display. Envisioning Information deals with all types of information displays, covering a far broader scope of material than Tufte's classic book on statistical graphics, The Visual Display of Quantitative Information.
