Presenting 200 graphics projects with over 400 examples each with a fact sheet and an explanation of methods and objectives divided into chapters by the subjects Location Time Category and HierarchyFeatures200 projects and over 400 examples of contemporary information graphics from all over the world ranging from journalism to art government education business and much Historical essays about the development of information graphics since its beginnings Exclusive poster 673 x 475 mm 265 x 187 in by Nigel Homes who during his 20 years as graphics director for TIME revolutionized the way the magazine used information graphics.
