Histories of information design

We often think of Information Design as a newly formed discipline, but the roots of explanatory graphics go way back. I'm thinking here of Leonardo Da Vinci's diagrams and Andreas Vesalius's anatomical drawings, but there are loads of other examples.

Lots to go at, then, for this conference on Information Design Histories at Coventry University on December 10. Some excellent speakers, including Robin Kinross, Ken Garland and Paul Stiff. Interesting that the conference uses 'histories' plural. Surely there is only one history but multiple interpretations? Am I missing something?

And on the following day is David Sless's forum on designing health information, which I'll definitely try and get to.
