A COMPLETE SET OF THE 2010 EDITIONS OF THE FOUR BOOKS OF EDWARD TUFTE, Together four volumes, 4 o . Original cloth; pictorial dust jackets; TOGETHER IN ORIGINAL PUBLISHER'S CARBOARD MAILER. BEAUTIFUL EVIDENCE: "The world's leading analyst of graphic information." -- Martin Kemp, Nature , 2006 "The Galileo of graphics has done it again. Its not often an iconoclast comes along, trashes the old ways, and replaces them with an irresistible new interpretation. By teasing out the sublime from the seemingly mundane world of charts, graphs, and tables, Tufte has proven to a generation of graphic designers that great thinking begets great presentation. In Beautiful Evidence , his fourth work on analytical design, Tufte digs more deeply into art and science to reveal very old connections between truth and beauty all the way from Galileo to Google." -- Business Week VISUAL EXPLANATIONS: "If this book were a house, it would have been designed by Frank Lloyd Wright "-- online "The Leonardo da Vinci of data." -- New York Times "A truly monumental exploration of information design; not only written but also designed and published by Tufte himself ... with intelligence, erudition, and grace." -- Print ENVISIONING INFORMATION: "A remarkable range of examples for the idea of visual thinking with beautifully printed pages. A real treat for all who reason and learn by means of images." -- Rudolf Arnheim "An incredibly beautiful, true, refined, and luscious book." -- Denise Scott Brown and Robert Venturi "Buy this book. Keep it with the few others you have that youll pass on to the next generation. It is a passionate, elegant revelation of how to render the three dimensions of experience into the two dimensions of paper or screen. As in his previous classic, The Visual Display of Quantitative Information , Tufte is promoting a new standard of visual literacy. This latest book (immaculately printed in 23 colors) is a lyrical primer of design strategies for reading and creating messages in 'flatland.' No other book has been so highly recommended to us by so many varieties of professional architects, teachers, technicians, hackers, and artists." -- Kevin Kelly, Whole Earth Review Envisioning Information received 14 awards for content and design, including the Phi Beta Kappa Award in Science and Best Graphic Design of the Year from ID International Design . THE VISUAL DISPLAY OF QUANTITATIVE INFORMATION: "A classic reference. The overall intention and power of the book is stunning." -- Optical Engineering "A visual Strunk and White." -- Boston Globe "Original, beautifully presented, sharp and learned, a work of art. The art here is cognitive art, the graphic display of relations and empirical data, now an indispensable tool of science and engineering." -- Scientific American "One of the best books you'll ever see." -- Datamation "A beautiful, brilliant book." -- American Mathematical Monthly (8)
