Edward Tufte has written a number of excellent, indeed beautiful books, on presentation, graphs and related matters.
This further link is to his reproduction poster of Minard’s map of Napoleon’s Russian campaign, which he commends as probably the best statistical graphic ever. Not only is it a great graphic, it is beautiful to look at.
Professor Tufte’s books and his website have much to teach us about the presentation of information.
If you can, obtain a copy of his monograph on Power Point. You will see Power Point presentations through a different mental lens subsequently.
