Book review: Immer schön sachlich

November 9, 2009

In his blog on specialized books, “Immer schön sachlich“ (stick to facts), Michael Schikowski reviews the Fritz Kahn monograph. Under the title “Verblüffungsmaschine Fritz Kahn” (amazement machine Fritz Kahn), he summarizes a “wonderfully designed book” whose authors remain objective while conveying their passion for visualization. Schikowski emphasizes the original illustration “Walnut and Brain” and the sense of sight portrayed as a movie production of the mind. Referring to Kahn’s analogies, he recommends supplemental annotation to verify their real contribution to scientific understanding.
