For those of you who aren't familiar with Tufte's books:

        "The Visual Display of Quantitative Information" by Edward R. Tufte 
                ISBN: 096139210X

        "Envisioning Information" by Edward R. Tufte 
                ISBN: 0961392118

They are the Knuth-esque books for user interface stuff, not necessarily
computer stuff either. On amazon, they refer to it as "The Strunk & White 
of visual design".
