Tafte writes,"The principles of analytical design are universal - like mathematics, the laws of Nature, the deep structure of language - and are not tied to any particular language, culture, style , century, gender, or technology of informtion display. As a result, our examples are widely distributed in space and time: the illustrations come from 14 centuries, 16 countries, (Italy and France, especially) 3 planets, and the innumerable stars. From the illustrations, it is difficult to idnetify what place or time this book is from, which is the point."Ad Reinhardt's "How to Look at Modern Art in America" and Mark Lombardi's "Global Networks" depicted in part in this book are held by the Sackner Archive. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
