Semiology of Graphics: Diagrams, Networks, Maps
ISBN: 9781589482616Pages: 460Year: 2010Price: HK$840

Semiology of Graphics: Diagrams, Networks, MapsOriginally published in French in 1967, Semiology of Graphics is internationally recognized as a foundational work in the fields of design and cartography. Based on Jacques Bertin's practical experience as a cartographer, part one of this work is an unprecedented attempt to synthesize principles of graphic communication with the logic of standard rules applied to writing and topography. Part two brings Bertin's theory to life, presenting a close study of graphic techniques, including shape, orientation, color, texture, volume, and size, in an array of more than 1,000 maps and diagrams. Now, with a new epilogue written by the author shortly before his death, this new 2010 edition in English reawakens us to the information design possibilities of modern technology.
