Icons and Information
by John M. Kennedy - 1974
This chapter is intended as a kind of model for an attempt to understand icons and like displays. It will try to suggest some ways to study icons, give examples appropriate even for children, and provide a practical theoretical viewpoint for the instructor. The viewpoint is that only some displays rely on cultural canons; other displays (icons) rely heavily on perceptual skills that usually develop spontaneously, without tutoring.
