The Art and Craft of Portraying Data
The visualization of data for communication or artistic purposes is still a relatively narrow niche as far as the academic community is concerned. On the Web, however, these are topics that many people are very interested in. Nathan Yau and Manuel Lima, two prominent visualization bloggers, have now written books about their views of visualization: respectively, Visualize This: The FlowingData Guide to Design, Visualization, and Statistics and Visual Complexity: Mapping Patterns of Information.
