I'm planning a course for the Fall, and I'd like suggestions. I taught
a masters-level course last year titled "Information Design &
Visualization". I used Tufte's "The Visual Display of Quantitative
Information" and "Ambient Findability" by Peter Morville. This coming
year, the course will be taught to graphic design seniors. I'm
definitely going to use Tufte again, but I'd like a better companion
book—one that talks about the field of Information Design.
I'm considering "Information Design" by Richard Saul Wurman and Robert
Jacobson and "Information Design Workbook" by Kim Baer. I haven't read
either of them yet. If anyone has recommendations for these or other
books, I'd like to hear them.
