Book recommendation: WIRED

Dec 5, 2013

In its UK edition of January 2014, WIRED magazine introduces its readers to Fritz Kahn. Entitled “Where data-viz began”, the article states that “Fritz Kahn’s imaginative visualisations helped to pave the way for the infographics of today.” It quotes co-author Uta von Debschitz explaining why Kahn’s work from the 1920s and 30s is relevant to this day: “We’re in a similar situation to Kahn and his contemporaries: new technologies and media give access to increasing sources of knowledge, while the information itself becomes increasingly complex.”
