NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC INFOGRAPHICS. Julius Wiedemann. Benedikt Taschen Verlag GmbH, Cologne, 2016. 480 pp. 38 x 25 cm. ISBN 9783836545952 In English.
Due date: December 2016. Publisher's description: Back in the days when the information age was a distant dream and the world a more mysterious place, National Geographic began its mission to reveal the wonders of history, popular science, and culture to eager audiences around the globe. Since that 1888 launch, the world has changed; empires have risen and crumbled and a galaxy of information is today only the click of a mouse away. But National Geographic endures; its calm, authoritative voice is respected as ever amid the surfeit of data in our daily lives. In this new anthology, TASCHEN and National Geographic gather the magazine's best infographics of the past 128 years. Through seven sections--History, The Planet, Being Human, Animal World, World of Plants, Science and Technology, and Space--we encounter the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, the mysterious origins of the Easter Island statues, Cleopatra's Alexandria and a history of Hawaiian surfboarding, all distilled in expert, accessible graphic form. We discover how our genetic patterns have been pieced together over the years or how hip-hop emerged as a cultural heavyweight; we get to grips with global warming, and explore our ever-expanding study of an ever-expanding universe.
