Information design books at Fleet

I’ve put these on reserve at Fleet for DS3 (bring the call # to the front desk and they’ll get it for you). The Edward Tufte books are classic and essential information design works and sort of “required reading” for anyone visualizing information. They’re really worth careful study at some point in your RISD career. I also reserved some of Richard Saul Wurman’s (founder of TED) information design books, which are a good counterpoint to Tufte. Wurman is speaking at the Fleet on Monday, Nov 2.
