This is the completely renewed edition of the standard reference book Wayshowing. Fully updated with digital signage systems and has much more tool-oriented, practical content. Moreover, all signage examples are newly selected for this edition.

Wayshowing > Wayfinding is divided into three parts. These deal with problems, principles and practices. First, the book discusses the problems of wayfinding. What are we looking for when we try to find our way in an un-known country? The answers are richer than you might initially expect.

The section on principles takes its point of departure in non-signs acting as signs. It then goes on to discuss the concepts of wayfinding and wayshowing. Next, it presents several theoretical and practical aspects of signs and their functions. After a discussion on signposting for people with impaired vision, this section of the book ends with a chapter on planning.

The section on practices examines cases from environments that depend on signage, including hospitals, airports, railways, museums, and cities. The cases include traditional print solutions, as well as all types of digital wayfinding / wayshowing.
