The "tag cloud" (far left) displays frequency distribution. More frequently used tags receive a larger font.

The "tag shadow" (big box with dots) attempts to capture that frequency distribution in a more visual medium. Try and embrace the "cloud" metaphor and imagine shining a light through the above "tag cloud." Effectively what I've done is shine that light from a whole bunch of different dirrections and found the most interesting shadows. I've then plotted the 2 most useful shadows against each other.

HIGHLIGHT * HOVER * CLICK * ZOOM IN * ZOOM OUT

If you click on one of the tags to the left, all the works associated with that tag will be highlighted. Clicking the tag again will toggle the highlighting.
Hover over the points to reveal the book cover.
Book covers click to more info (and tons of links) below.
Drag a box around points to zoom.
Click RESET to zoom out. Or you can double click anywhere on the tagShadow.
