This book explains fundamentals of information visualization. Unfortunately, the book is out of print. A reprint was promised by the University of Wisconsin Press but is not available yet.
To put the main thought in the author‘s words: What should be printed to facilitate communication, that is, to tell others what we know, without a loss of information? We now know that understanding means simplifying, reducing a vast amount of data to the small number of categories of information that we are capable of taking into account in dealing with a given problem.
So, it is the simplest and thus most communicable image that Semiology of Graphics proposes to construct.
