Visual Communication: A Study of Symbols 700103

Graphic symbols have always been used to help design and build machines. Now they are helping people operate these machines, safely and economically. This has created new interest in semiotics-the science of signs and symbols.
What symbols are; their value, derivation and design guidelines; and testing and coordinating procedures are discussed and illustrated. Actual examples of existing automotive symbol systems are presented. Several international organizations specializing in symbol research are reviewed.
