Tufte's latest is too new to be listed in Resources for College Libraries with two of his earlier magisterial works on graphical representation of reality; but we fully expect it to achieve that eminence. Beautiful Evidence continues his techniques for presenting immediate compelling images demonstrating data. His first woprk, Visual Display of Quantitative Information, has been selected by over 2100 library members of OCLC. Here is a happy exception to the contempt in which author-published books are held; Tufte-published books are revered for their intellectual content, lucid presentation and splendid bookmaking.
