Publisher Comments:

The rise of infographics across virtually all print and electronic media—from a striking breakdown of classic cocktails to a graphic tracking 200 influential moments that changed the world to visually arresting depictions of Twitter traffic—reveals patterns in our lives and our world in fresh and surprising ways. In the era of big data, where information moves faster than ever, infographics provide us with quick, often influential bursts of art and knowledge—on the environment, politics, social issues, health, sports, arts and culture, and more—to digest, to tweet, to share, to go viral.

The Best American Infographics captures the finest examples from the past year, including the ten best interactive infographics, of this mesmerizing new way of seeing and understanding our world.


The newest volume—fresh and visually arresting—in the acclaimed Best American series, showcasing the finest examples of data visualization from the past year

Infographics are the darlings of the media, designers, activist organizations, and homespun programmers. This book pulls together the "best", but really the best from large media organizations. There are some exceptions to that sourcing, but most come from the likes of National Geographic and New York Times. If you're new to this media, you'll be captivated. There's almost no commentary on each image; it's all up to you. If you follow visualizations, you won't find much surprising here, but the quality of the book production is good.. In the future, Cook should consider offering more background. Given that infographics are new (sort of. New in that we didn't study them in school as we did poetry, short stories, essays, etc.) and now everywhere, the editor should give readers a sense of the history to which they belong.
