Visual Explanations
Images and Quantities, Evidence and Narrative
Hardcover      ISBN: 0961392126
Tufte's (statistical evidence and information design, Yale U.) third book on displaying information that began with the now classic The Visual Display of Quantitative Information (1983). Whereas the first considered the display of numbers and the second of nouns, this explores the representation of verbs, mechanisms and motion, process and dynamics, cause and effect, explanation and narrative. In explicating the principles, he cites such examples as visual evidence to decide to launch the space shuttle Challenger, a supercomputer animation of a thunderstorm, stage magic, and disinformation design. Many examples show redesigns comparing before and after. Lavishly illustrated in color throughout, and includes four flaps showing before and after effects.

The Visual Display of Quantitative Information
2nd Edition    Hardcover      ISBN: 0961392142
The first edition of Tufte's now classic text on the design of statistical graphics was published in 1983. Tufte published it himself with the help of a second mortgage in order to have complete control over the book's design, which he wanted to reflect the intellectual principles put forth in its contents. That edition saw 17 reprintings. This second edition provides high-resolution color reproduction of William Playfair's many graphics, adds color to other images, and includes all the changes and corrections accumulated since the first edition publication.
