Overview

Infographics is the only book to provide description and examples of the proper use of graphic forms to present information.

This book presents an in-depth and straightforward approach to explaining the use of information graphics, offering coverage of a form of communication that is as important as writing. This book examines the development of information graphics in modern journalism and takes an in-depth and analytical look at all the major graphic forms that journalists use. It categorizes graphics into charts, charts without numbers, maps, type-based graphics, and illustration-based graphics and discusses the sub-categories of each.
