Information Graphics, by Sandra Rendgen, is a stunningly beautiful book with more than 400 examples of data visualization from around the world.
Fantastically over-sized with a 10-by-15-inch trim and a 2-inch spine, and weighing a hefty 8 pounds, it’s easily the biggest book in my design library. Aside from the spectacular collection of infographic examples, the book is beautifully produced on matte-coated stock with gatefolds, a short-trimmed intro section, and gorgeous four-color printing throughout.
Sandra takes us on an elegant tour of infographics organized by location, time, category, and hierarchy. Her book sells for $47 on Amazon and is an absolute bargain (and visual delight) for any design fan.
