9780007506156: The Infographic History of the World

The History of the World, but not as you know it.

A new type of history is here – all 13.8 billion years of it, exploded into a visually jaw-dropping feast of facts, trends and timelines that tell you everything you’d ever want to know about the history of the world.

From the primordial soup to the technological revolution of the 21st century, interesting stuff has been going on; and ever since prehistoric man scratched the first tally markings into a damp cave wall, we’ve been counting and measuring it all.

Which historic warriors conquered the most territory, killed the most people, or had the largest empire?
When did everything evolve?
Which languages are related to which?
What’s been invented and when?
Where are we being born, and what are we dying of?
Which countries are eating all the food, causing all the pollution and taking all the drugs?

A story of civilisation and barbarism, of war and peace, this is history done in a new way – a beautifully designed collection of the most insightful and revealing trends that tell us what the human race has been up to, and where we’re heading.

Recensione:

‘The book is a delight’ The Economist

‘This new book, packed with beautifully and cleverly laid out infographics, provides a refreshing exploration of the history of the world.’ Creative Review

‘A new book that continues to push the field of infographics forward.’ Visually

‘Not only is this book a chock full of rich visuals, but the organization is an artform in itself. Small details […] make this a delightful read from cover to cover.’ Core 77

‘This book does nothing less than chronicle nearly 14 billion years of Earth’s history […] all rendered in clever, topic-specific graphics.’ Fast Company

L'autore:

Pixel pusher. Paper lover. Data geek.
Valentina D’Efilippo is a multi-disciplinary designer with an appetite for creativity and innovation – across all formats and media. After studying industrial design in Italy, she moved to London and gained a post-graduate degree in graphic design. Since then, her passion for visual communication and digital media has taken form in data visualisation, art direction, and interactive design. She has worked with a number of leading agencies contributing to award-winning campaigns for global brands looking to sell more cars, oil and beer. Valentina founded London-based Italika Design in 2011.

James Ball is a multi-award-winning data journalist working on the Guardian’s investigations team. He was a core journalist on several of the newspaper’s data-driven investigations, including the Reading the Riots project, its reporting on WikiLeaks’ Guantánamo Bay files, and the Offshore Secrets series. Before joining the Guardian, he worked with Channel 4 Dispatches, Panorama and ITN with the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, and was a freelancer working for WikiLeaks during its publication of 250,000 US embassy cables. James is a lecturer on City University’s Interactive and Investigative Journalism courses, and lives and works in central London.
