ARCHI-GRAPHIC: AN INFOGRAPHIC LOOK AT ARCHITECTURE. Frank Jacobus. Laurence King Publishing Ltd, London, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Chronicle Books, San Francisco. 160 pp. with 102 ills. (96 col.). 22 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781780676197 In English.
Publisher's description: This informative and engaging book uses a variety of inventive infographics to take an unusual look at architecture in a way that would not be possible with words and images alone. Through a variety of different infographics it compares, for example, the range of materials and colours used by different architects, the relative locations of their buildings, who influenced who, and which architects are the most discussed. It also approaches architecture from more unconventional angles with spreads that show the kinds of architecture favoured by dictators, the networks of love affairs that architects got entangled in; the defining facial features of famous architects and so on. Irreverent and entertaining, this book will appeal to all those with an interest in architecture or infographics.
