Cross section book

book cover A couple weeks ago I picked up a great book at the annual used book sale held by the Brooklyn Public Library in New York: Stephen Biesty's Incredible Cross-Sections by Richard Platt, Stephen Biesty (Illustrator). I grew up with a book like this, may have been the same book, that showed the innards of machines, cruise ships, etc. It's a lot of fun to look at these and a great example of how fun information design can be. Note: I'm not endorsing Amazon by linking to the book. If you prefer, find it at Barnes and Noble. -m
