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.

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.”
