(Preface) 'One of the most important but least recognized aspects of the design profession is the organization and presentation of information. Designers need to make information accessible and available to everyone - but how do they arrive at such elegant and useful solutions to complicated problems

Covering a broad spectrum of material, from transportation systems and body-imaging maps to personal information-manager (PIM) interfaces and three-dimensional rendering, Information Graphics presents an international selection of work that makes our world function smoothly, including designs by such masters as Erik Spiekermann of Meta Design in Germany, Richard Saul Wurman in the United States and Hiroyuki Kimura of Tube Graphics in Japan. Organized by type, each project includes detailed commentary on how the design came to be, how it responded to the client's needs and why it works. Within each chapter are detailed case studies that examine a single project in depth, from the client's initial request to the finished product.

Many of the examples presented here are destined to become classics of their kind. An invaluable sourcebook for students and an essential guide for the professional to creating the most successful designs, Information Graphics will become the standard guide to this crucial aspect of design practice.'
