The Infographic History of the World

The Infographic History of the World

Review of the UK edition: "The authors have put as much effort into the design as the data and their book is meant to entertain as much as to inform." -- The Economist The Infographic History of the World starts at the dawn of time and launches into a 13.8 billion-year journey. Four sections--In the Beginning, Getting Civilized, Nation Building, and The Modern World--present world history as a visual essay of facts, trends and timelines. It is history done in a new way, a beautifully designed collection of insightful and revealing infographics that tell us where we've been and where we're heading. The book's design cleverly mirrors the content, opening with parchment-like paper stock, primitive typography and no color and progressing to glossy pages, minimalist design and brilliant color. Seventy-four topics, 100 infographics and 224 pages weave a story of civilization and conquest, of war and peace, of science and invention, as well as some of the big issues of

North American Railroad Family Trees: An Infographic History of the Industry’s Mergers and Evolution

North American Railroad Family Trees: An Infographic History of the Industry

The history of railroading in North America is as much a story of boardroom intrigue as it is a story of the brute force that stamped thousands of miles of train track across a rugged continent. Today’s nine U.S. and Canadian Class I railroads are the result of well over a century of convoluted bankruptcies, mergers, acquisitions, and expansions. North American Railroad Family Trees marks the first time in book form that this major aspect of railroad history has been presented in a clear, graphic format, helping the railfan make sense of the many smaller train lines that shaped North American rail as it is today. In these pages, renowned rail author Brian Solomon takes a visual and chronological approach, presenting 50 “family trees” in the style of human lineages. The story begins with the railroads of the “Golden Age” (1890–1930), continuing through the second wave of consolidations between the World Wars, the merger mania of the 1950s through the 1970s, the creation of m

South Carolina [infographic]

I’m writing this post from South Carolina, where I have spent the past week for a cousin’s wedding. Normally I’d be pretty cranky since I’ve spent the past week in a crowded house with over 10 loud and crazy relatives, but because South Carolina is pretty much the best place I’ve ever visited, I don’t mind at all!

The weather has been absolutely amazing, like mid 70′s all day. This is heaven since I’m currently living in South Texas, where the humidity usually overpowers any cold front that might pass by (seriously it was 88 degrees last Christmas). I’m sold on the beautiful weather and lush foliage here in South Carolina and I fully intend on making my way back up here for either graduate school, or a job. With that said, I figured I’d post some South Carolina facts so I can be a good citizen in the future. Today’s infographic gives us some historical facts about this wonderful state. Hopefully you South Carolinians will enjoy it! [via]
