New Video: Around The World

The Atlas for Today
Posted by Angie—11/2013

The world is an amazing place, filled with complexity and contradiction. Today, we swim in floods of data and ideas, numbers and phrases that appear on our screens and in our media. Fortunately, we have storytellers and visual interpreters who explain, graphically, how something happened and what went on. Individually, they help us understand a single issue. Together, they explain a slice of the world.

Our recent book Around The World is filled with these remarkable stories and helpful infographics collected from countries spanning the globe. This is the world that we live in, beautiful and complicated, drawn out and explained. Learn a bit more about it in this video.
