Publisher Comments:

Interpretive signs are found in many places--national parks, zoos, museums, historic sites, theme parks, and visitor centers. They help visitors to understand and appreciate important aspects of our natural and cultural heritage. But to do this they need to be designed in an effective, user-friendly way. This comprehensive guide provides a series of principles and guidelines for effective sign design, with instruction based on research, the latest in educational and psychological theory, real world examples, and practical guidelines. A must-read for interpreters, Designing Interpretative Signs includes valuable information about choosing sign locations, attracting and keeping visitors' attention, organizing information so that visitors can easily follow it, and evaluating and improving signs for a wide range of sites.

Book News Annotation:

How can signs make exhibits accessible to everyone? When is a descriptive sign an impediment rather than an aid to learning? The authors, all academics specializing in tourism and related communications, give curators and designers sound advice on planning and installing interpretive signs in exhibits and related spaces. They give the basics behind communicating with interpretive and informational signs, including creating signs that engage learners and fit the audience, explain planning techniques and considerations, including assessing whether or not they really need a sign, show how to attract attention with signs and keep it, describe how to write text visitors can understand, analyze methods of fostering learning and show how to use creative ideas, detail considerations of children's and families' exhibits, and show how evaluation works. They provide plenty of good (and bad) examples, including color photographs. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
