'With his extensive experience of teaching graphics at secondary schools and an infectious enthusiasm for the subject, Umberto Abate shoes us how to develop out potential to become creative and successful graphic communicators. As with any language, we must learn the basic alphabet of graphic elements and devices. We must learn too the techniques and mechanical skills for presenting out ideas on paper. This progressive blend of physical and conceptual skills will help us achieve a fluency and feel for all aspects of graphic communication, whether they be maps or explanatory diagrams, symbols or statistical charts. With its range of challenging and exciting projects Graphic Communication: an introduction will encourage us to develop out own thematic and visually stylistic approach to stimulating and comprehensible graphic presentation. People can hear what we say and read what we write, but how much better would it be if, as competent graphic communicators, we could show them what we mean.!'
