Originally published in French in 1967, Semiology of Graphics is internationally recognized as a foundational work in the fields of design and cartography. Based on Jacques Bertin's practical experience as a cartographer, part one of this work is an unprecedented attempt to synthesize principles of graphic communication. Part two brings Bertin's theory to life, presenting a close study of graphic techniques, including shape, orientation, color, texture, volume, and size. Reawakened by the possibilities presented by modern technology, this cartographic classic continues to hold a significant place in the study of information design.
