You'll probably be interested in Keller and Keller, _Visual
Cues: Practical Data Visualization_, just out from IEEE Press.
It's sort of an art book for scientists, showing over a hundred
renderings of concrete or abstract data from various fields and
explaining what was done to highlight the interesting aspects.
Highly recommended to scientists who do this sort of thing, and
perhaps useful to graphic artists and other technical
communication professionals as well.

Good luck, and followup to sci.research (unless you think c.g.v.
would welcome the discussion),
