    Remind me at some time to share with you Will Eisner’s work for the War Dept. in WW2 and after about teaching under-educated Army mechanics how to change spark plugs etc. All heavily illustrated in a “Sad Sack” format. Can’t remember the character’s name at the moment. Might interest you from an Information Design pov.
