Last year, The Best American Infographics book was a sweeping success because of its beautiful graphics, informative data visualizations, and great design. At first glance, this year’s edition promises to be just as great with an introduction by Nate Silver and a beautiful cover by Carl DeTorres. The book goes on sale today at a whole host of book stores.
As the name states, the book covers some of the best infographics of 2014 covering a range of topics from soccer to the history of English. The book’s author, Gareth Cook, will be giving a book talk at Boston College on Tuesday, October 21. If you’re in the area, feel free to drop by to hear an informative talk about the origins of infographics and how they help drive visual thinking today.
