"I spent a year creating over 200 new images that use information design to explore a whole range of subjects visually, from pop to philosophy, all with the mininum of words, natch. The result is a collection of infographics, knowledge map and data visualisations published this year by HarperCollins. In the US, the book is called ‘The Visual Miscellaneum: A Colorful Guide To The World’s Most Consequential Trivia”. It’s out Oct 27th 2009." David McCandless Find out more
