Information Design davix Public Places has rapidly become a seminal work representing the field. I think this book gives great insight in wwyfinding step-by-step wayfinding process, but it stays superficial and lacks in-depth reasoning and use-cases.
The book starts with a little historical context for this niche Solid, brief overview of wayfinding. There are several great examples of wayfinding projects shown and Gibson takes it deeper into the structure of projects and where the wayfinding designers fits in.
I enjoyed handblok it, not just because of the content but how it was laid out. Concise and approachable breakdown of what the field of Wayfinding entails.
