Manuel Lima’s authorship on knowledge and visualization

Sounds interesting; Manuel Lima’s latest book about visualization: “The Book of Circles. Earlier” books are “The Book of Trees” and “Visual Complexity”.

“Join Manuel Lima for a fascinating tour through millennia of circular information design in architecture, urban planning, fine art, design, fashion, technology, religion, cartography, biology, astronomy and physics in a visual feast for infographics enthusiasts. From Venn diagrams and early celestial charts to the trefoil biohazard symbol and Target‚Äôs corporate logo, Lima provides a history of humanity‚Äôs long-lasting obsession with all things circular and a unique taxonomy of the many varieties of circle diagrams.”
