I review mostly visualization-related books, but also some others that I find relevant. The list of topics I’m interested in also includes information graphics, perceptual psychology, writing, communication, storytelling, etc.
Book Review: Visual Thinking for Design, by Colin Ware
Colin Ware’s latest book Visual Thinking for Design has a promising subtitle: active vision, attention, visual queries, gist, visual skills, color, narrative, design. That’s covering quite a bit of ground, and also a lot of things not usually considered in visualization. While this is a book about design, I was interested in what it could teach people in InfoVis, and I review it from that point of view.
