Description: The work of Tufte and Graphics Press. Read testimonials about his books and purchase them online: The Graphic Display of Quantitative Information, Envisioning Information, and Visual Explanations: Images and Quantities, Evidence and Narrative. In the Ask E.T. moderated forum, Tufte answers questions dealing with information design. Register for his one-day course, "Presenting Data and Information," which covers fundamental strategies of information design; evaluating evidence used in presentations; tables, graphics, semi-graphics, and other statistical data; complexity and clarity; use of video, overheads, computers, and handouts; multi-media, internet, and websites. The section titled "New ET Writings, Artworks, and News" includes Graphics of the Day, "Long-term survival rates of cancer patients achieved by the end of the 20th century," translations of Charles Joseph Minard, and classic articles, such as Stephen J. Gould's "The Median Isn't the Message," Frederick Mosteller's "Classroom and Platform Performance," John W. Tukey's "Some Graphic and Semigraphic Displays," and Austin Bradford Hill's "The Environment and Disease: Association or Causation?" Preview and buy ghost grid printed on acid-free paper "for artists and scientists," and posters of Tufte's own "The Cognitive Style of PowerPoint"; Russian cosmonaut, Georgi Grechko's "Historic Visual Diary of Spaceflight: Cyclogram"; and "Napoleon's March," Minard's portrayal of the losses suffered by Napoleon's army in the Russian campaign of 1812. See also Tufte's fine art and sculpture, including Escaping Flatland and "Cognitive Art: A Portfolio of Five Original Prints," from Envisioning Information.
