I've seen this

People who have saved this event:



Isotype or 'International system of typographic picture education' was a method of showing facts pictorially. Its basic elements were pictograms — simplified pictures of people or things — graphically arranged to illustrate and explain social and economic issues to ordinary people. This display, in collaboration with the University of Reading, will trace the story of Isotype over four decades, from its invention in 1920s Vienna to its flourishing in postwar Britain.
