    DescriptionThis modern atlas presents our world in striking images and clear texts. The book is not just for graphic designers, but also for anyone who is curious about how we live today. Looking through an atlas has always been a fascinating way to explore the world. Around the World is a contemporary evolution of an atlas tailored to our information age that takes its readers around the globe in 288 pages. In this book, compelling information graphics illustrate how natural and manmade phenomena impact our lives. They take us on an entertaining and informative journey that gives us a deeper understanding not only of our planet's geography, but also of the key local and global developments of the twenty-first century. Alongside classic facts about nature, history, population, culture, and politics, Around the World's eye-catching information graphics clearly explain complex processes such as global trade and evolving demographics. The book gives added insight into our modern world through its visual exploration of topics such as the changing speed of travel. Around the World alternates between providing information on general subjects such as families, languages, life expectancies, natural disasters, eating habits, economies, prosperity gaps, or religions, and providing more specific details about hobbies, coffee consumption, overfishing, soccer, and internet providers. The book also depicts events that have left indelible marks on our collective conscience including September 11, the Olympic Games, Japan's Fukushima disaster, and the sinking of the Titanic. Like any atlas, Around the World cannot claim to be a complete record. Rather, it serves as a rich cornucopia of information about local peculiarities of global relevance that bring home the little differences --as well as the astoundingly large similarities--among the citizens of the world. Enthralling, attractive, and informative, Around the World's international collection of illustrations and information graphics is for anyone who is curious about our planet and the people who live on it.
