BERTIN, Jacques. Semiology of Graphics: Diagrams Networks Maps.
(Madison, WI): University of Wisconsin Press, 1983. First edition. Quarto. 415 pages. Translated by William J. Berg. Originally published in French in 1967, Semiology of Graphics holds a significant place in the theory of information design. Founded 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, colour, texture, volume, and size in an array of more than 1,000 maps and diagrams. A near fine copy in very good dust jacket. Jacket with some scratches and rubbing, still a presentable copy.
