Originally published in French in 1967,Semiology of Graphicsholds a significant place in the theory of information design. Founded on Jacques Bertinrs"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 Bertinrs"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.
