Warning: DON'T BUY THIS BOOK if you are uncomfortable with unfinished work! This is version 0.5 and much of the content is still in a vague and formative stage. Seriously, READ THE WARNING LABEL. I don't want to hear that you're disappointed because this book is "too unfinished" disjointed, with many blank pages, etc. I am putting it up here because many people have requested it. Marks and Meaning is a work in progress; an evolving exploration of visual language, visual thinking and visual work practices by the founder and Chairman of XPLANE, the visual thinking company. An unfinished work, it's a hybrid: part sketchbook, part textbook, part workbook. It's continuously updated by the author, based on feedback and conversations with readers. When you buy the "book" you'll be invited to an email discussion group where the book's ideas and content are being discussed. This is version 0.5: the second version available to the public, last revised 14 April 2009.

    I really enjoyed reading (and sketching in) this amazing unbook! Marks and Meaning is an important boundary object that binds together information architecture, visual literacy, creativity, and strategic thinking. Thanks Dave (and friends) for sharing this artifact of play in progress. -- Peter Morville

    I thought, shouldn't this just be online?, but I bought it based on the intrique factor and Dave's blog. In reality, there is still something delicious about a book in you hand. Knowing this is like a journal of musings is fine, great, fluid -- and I felt I could dare to write all over it since it was not done! Really, you can't describe it well except to say you want to find a way to participate and print it out every quarter... great experiment!
