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.
