Austrian sociologist Otto Neurath developed the Isotype system of pictograms in the early 1930s as a way to communicate complex information in visual form. Appearing in a variety of media, including books, posters, and films, it was designed to inform ordinary citizens about their place in the world. Isotype is the first comprehensive account of this seminal movement in the history of visual communication. Featuring new research, including previously unseen visual material, this long-overdue account traces the development of the Isotype system from its birth in prewar Vienna, through a wartime shift of production to the Netherlands, and finally to 1940s England, where the Isotype Institute continued to produce work until 1971. Isotype documents the visual system's worldwide influence, including its educational uses by the United States, Soviet Russia, and Africa.

The sparkling memoir of an idyllic, bohemian childhood in an enchanted Tuscan castle between the World War I and World War II. When Kinta Beeevor was five, her father, the painter Aubrey Waterfield, bought the sixteenth-century Fortezza della Brunella in the Tuscan village of Aulla. There her parents were part of a vibrant artistic community that included Aldous Huxley, Bernard Berenson, and D. H. Lawrence. Meanwhile, Kinta and her brother explored the glorious countryside, participated in the region's many seasonal rites and rituals, and came to know and love the charming, resilient Italian people. With the coming of World War II the family had to leave Aulla; years later, though, Kinta would return to witness the courage and skill of the Tuscan people as they rebuilt their lives. Lyrical and witty, A Tuscan Childhood is alive with the timeless splendour of Italy. From the Trade Paperback edition.
