This book by art historian and cultural theorist Sandra Rendgen explores the life and career of the nineteenth century civil engineer Charles-Joseph Minard. Minard's famous map of Napoleon's 1812 march into Russia, showing the catastrophic losses suffered by the army, is considered to be one of the best data graphics ever produced. Minard drew many other fascinating maps during his life, providing graphical representations of data concerning the social and economic changes during the Industrial Revolution in Europe. Over sixty of these drawings appear in this book, taken from the collection of the École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées in Paris.
