Can't wait to get my hands on this forthcoming Taschen title, by art historian and art editor Sandra Rendgen; with graphic designer and editor Julius Wiedemann: Information Graphics. The book explores the visual communication of data, and the "massive flow of information that we must interpret in order to understand the world we live in," featuring work from masters of the profession.

From the book description: "The in-depth introductory section, illustrated with over 60 images (each accompanied by an explanatory caption), features essays by Sandra Rendgen, Paolo Ciuccarelli,Richard Saul Wurman, and Simon Rogers; looking back all the way to primitive cave paintings as a means of communication, this introductory section gives readers an excellent overview of the subject."

More than 200 projects and 400 examples of contemporary information graphics from around the world, and a nifty poster (673 x 475 mm / 26.5 x 18.7 in) by former TIME graphics director Nigel Holmes.

Do want. Amazon pre-order link (comes out March 20). More about the book, and images from inside, at Taschen.com.
