Taxonomy of visual communication and a bibliography

Communications Arts Visual literacy

The study of visual communication is a multi-disciplinary, multi-dimensional effort. People who write on this topic come from a wide range of disciplines and viewpoints causing some problems academically for those who teach visual communication because of a lack of common theory.

This project looks at the body of literature and the categories that emerge from the writings to develop a taxonomy of topics and a sense of the location of the most important, or at least the most frequently written about, areas of study.
