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.
- Author 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
- 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." ---Frieze
