Daniel Pink recommended this book (in A Whole New Mind, I think). Designer George Nelson seems pretty confident that I am visually illiterate. I loved reading/viewing this collection of pictures (of our man-made environment) with Nelson's voice uniting them. So much to be seen all around us all the time! How to See (I hope) will help me remember to take a critical look around more often...really enjoy the designs that surround us.
Published in 1973 for the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare to improve upon government design. Brushes through the most basic of visual design, it is a quick 71 page read. Most interesting to see what was considered a technological advancement in the 70s...which was the beginning of seeing with the technology of the camera and telescope.
