infosthetics just received the brand new book "Beautiful Evidence", on which Edward Tufte worked for 9 years. as with his previous books, it is packed with many illustrations, showing bad examples as well as carefully crafted revisions that support the sometimes provocative textual narrative. the visual lay-out, paper, printing & binding quality are in line with the book's challenging title (where was the time that books smelled good as well?).
more comments after the jump, but in short: this book is highly recommended!
btw: fans should not miss some Tuftian/Tuftesque(?) online resources, such as the excellent junk charts & presentation zen weblogs.
