It's more the other way round. I quoted this book for this reason in 
<http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2009-10/msg00754.html> on 16
October. 

While we're talking free books, I've just been looking at the entire
text (over 500 pp.) of 

Brinton, Willard Cope. 1939. Graphic presentation. New York: Brinton
Associates. <http://www.archive.org/details/graphicpresentat00brinrich> 

You can see that self-publishing books on graphics did not start with
Edward Tufte in 1983...

They've obviously been paying attention to Nick's concerns for the color
blind:

"Our first edition was unfriendly to colorblind readers; in particular,
we tended to favor red/green contrasts which are particularly
troublesome.
We have changed the color palette in this edition to a large
extent, replacing the above with an orange/blue contrast."
