It may be unfair to call Fritz Kahn’s pioneering design work inforgraphics. It seems to be a bit of a cheat on the importance of his work.
Fritz Kahn was a German doctor, educator, popular and science writer, whose brilliant information development of creative visualizations to explain complex scientific ideas can be seen as the birthplace of infographics. And now, on the 125th anniversary of his birth, Taschen books is publishing a monograph which features more than 350 illustrations with extensive captions, three original texts by Fritz Kahn, a foreword by Steven Heller, and an essay about Kahn’s life and œuvre. Natural science buffs, graphics professionals, and anyone interested in visual expression of ideas will be fascinated by this tribute to Kahn’s greatest achievements.
