Book Review: “The Visual Miscellaneum” – Explore The Design World of Infographics In Only A Few MomentsNovember 19, 2009 | uidesigner
I recently received a review copy of The Visual Miscellaneum A colorful guide to the world’s most consequential trivia. This was a great book from the author of Information is Beautiful. The books is a visual exploration of information and contains numerous examples of how to rethink ways in which we interpret data. Not all of the examples are what you would expect. The book is full of brilliant colors, shapes, sizes, charts, scatter-grams, area charts, and eye-popping visuals. It’s a great addition to any UI designers reference shelf.
I read a lot of books and in this field it’s good to both refresh and improve your skills. The latest book I finished (just this morning) is Neuro Web Design: What Makes Them Click? by Susan M. Weinschenk.
I highly recommend Luke Wroblewski’s book “Web Form Design Filling in the Blanks.” I first came across this book many months back and since then it has retained a coveted spot on my reference shelf.
