Have you noticed he now has a new book out? It's called Beautiful Evidence. It's probably less useful than his other books in terms of the question raised in this thread but an initial glance suggests it may be his best yet -- it seems to be about using art as evidence of fact.

It's getting close to the top of my waiting-to-be-read book pile along with a small Tufte book on PowerPoint.
