Ebooks and Tufte


Many people romanticize the experience of reading a printed book, but I just don’t get it.

Neither do I. And I’m all for calling ebooks (including the ones purchased from iBookstore), books.

But there at least four notable books that don’t work as ebooks, at least given today’s state of technology. They are: “The Visual Display of Quantitative Information”, “Envisioning Information”, “Visual Explanations” and “Beautiful Evidence”, all by Edward Tufte. You want all that awesomeness on paper.
