Manuel Lima’s smash hit Visual Complexity is
now available in paperback. This groundbreaking
2011 book—the first to combine a thorough history
of information visualization with a detailed look
at today’s most innovative applications—clearly
illustrates why making meaningful connections
inside complex data networks has emerged as one of
the biggest challenges in twenty-first-century design.
From diagramming networks of friends on Facebook
to depicting interactions among proteins in a human
cell, Visual Complexity presents one hundred
of the most interesting examples of information visualization
by the field’s leading practitioners.


• Manuel Lima has been called the “Edward Tufte of
the twenty-first century” and was named one of the
“fifty most creative and influential minds of 2009”
by Creativity magazine

Media Reviews

Visual Complexity is a showcase for the intersection of art, design and science. Some [of the examples] are profound. Many are decidedly beautiful. And all are fascinating, given the infinite kinds of data that can be visualized.”
The New York Times Book Review

“ The historical section alone makes the book worth purchasing, while the exploration of the concepts and visually impressive layout will keep you engaged throughout.”
Cool Hunting

“ Incredibly ambitious, deeply researched, and beautifully illustrated. Visual Complexity is the next step in understanding where information design is (and needs to be) headed.”
