Real infographics explained,
This review is from: Cool Infographics: Effective Communication with Data Visualization and Design (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It has always infuriated me in recent years that many people equate a clear chart / graph (such as those in The Economist) with an infographic. They're not. Infographic are rich graphical experiences combining multiple sources of data and representations around a common theme. This comprehensive book does a great job of dispelling some of they myths, setting out the history and purpose of infographics. It's clear and authoritative, giving great examples and some handy tips on how to create your own infographics (though in no way is it a how to guide). If you're interested in the subject it is a good read.
