Aficionados of graphics may be interested to know that the English 
translation (1984) of Jacques Bertin's
Semiology of Graphics has been reprinted by ESRI.

new edition:

The long out-of-print 1984 edition sells for $380, but the new printing 
is a bargain at ~$49.
It is all the more remarkable in that most of the diagrams and graphs 
were drawn by hand,
yet show a palette of graphical techniques richer than our graphical 
software provides
even today.
