Product description

Review

The book is infinitely compelling, one you'll return to time and again, and full of 'wow, you have to see this' moments. It reinforces the notion that information really can be beautiful... (Londonist)

This is London as you've never seen it before (Independent)

You know how you've always wanted a coffee-table book that translates lots of complex social data about London into a series of gorgeously illustrated infographics? Well it's finally arrived. (Time Out)

Brilliantly compelling...The Information Capital is a tour de force in the modern use of graphics to make a point (London Evening Standard)

A monumental work... Its pages are to dip into, to linger over and to return to time and again. It's hard to imagine tiring of them. (Management Today)

You can only imagine and get a sense of how much research and data collection must have been behind this project. It is a fascinating dissection of London life as we know it (The London Magazine)

Fascinating (London Evening Standard)

A witty, well-written, well-designed view of the city, with enlightening and often surprising perspectives (New Scientist)
