(Preface) 'Information graphics, often referred to as the 'green' area of graphic design, due to its relative freedom from commercial imperatives and visual rhetoric, is nevertheless undergoing rapid change in adjusting to the new technologies and the current needs of an increasingly visually-aware user.

Peter Wildbur's new book brings together for the first time a number of previously separate areas of information graphics and illustrates with international examples their design possibilities, the common ground between them and the nature of the constraints that each imposes on the designer. The illustrations include such diverse examples as computer generated illustrations for a book ¿ artificial intelligence, the signage for Foster Associate's Hongkong and Shanghai Bank, the use of space age maps to illustrate a new atlas of the Bible and user-selectable graphics for a Danish hi-fi music system.'
