Infographics are all the rage these days, but National Geographic have been doing them for 125 years and counting. Now, the magazine is teaming up with Taschen for a handsome hardcover collection of its infographics over the years/decades/century and change, entitled National Geographic Infographics.
Featuring detailed infographics on subjects like “A History of Skis,” “Ocean Wanderers,” and much more, National Geographic Infographics is of interest not just due to the natural and historical subject matter involved but from a graphic design standpoint as well, since the charts therein represent the gold standard in presenting complex information visually and intuitively.
National Geographic Infographics from National Geographic and Taschen technically comes out tomorrow, but it’s already listed as “in stock” on Amazon right here, complete with the assurance that it will arrive before Christmas. So if you’re looking for a last-minute holiday gift, there would certainly be worse ways to spend a little less than $70.
