I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this info graphics book from Harper Collins
, it looks fantastic.The Visual Miscellaneum: A colourful guide to the world's most consequential trivia
(or Information is Beautiful
as it will be known in the UK) is the baby of London based author, writer, blogger and designer, David McCandless, a self-confessed fan of, "anything strange and interesting"
Here are some preview pics from Information is Beautiful
. It's definitely my kind of book - loads of big graphics and very little text.
It was released in the states yesterday and can be bought here
, but in the UK we have to wait until 4 February 2010! It can be pre-ordered here
though.Images copyright David McCandless.
