These are great. I recently found a 1974 copy of Graphis Diagrams. Information design in 60's/70's educational books was amazing. What year were these editions published?


Ref. Graphis Diagram - Have you seen this?


I was fortunate enough to have received both this series and the TIme-Life Nature sets as a kid, but they're long gone. Knowing what I know now about color print production these things were seriously labor-intensive to produce at the time. They were also fantastic bookworm fodder :)


These books serve as an excellent inspiration source for a project I'm currently working on. Thank you for posting them.

For those that are interested, a quick look in Amazon (US) reveals many of the titles from this series are available for less than a dollar.
