THE VISUAL DISPLAY OF QUANTITATIVE INFORMATION
"Graphical excellence consists of complex ideas communicated with clarity, precision, and efficiency."
Tufte's landmark, lauded as one of the great books of the century, matching pithy text to exemplary illustration, and reproducing numerous early graphic representations of economic data by J.H. Lambert and William Playfair. Concerned with accuracy and integrity, Tufte spotlights both good and bad data representations, and discusses the virtues of editing and aesthetics in presentation of dense and complex data. A handsome copy of an essential book.
