As illustrators, one conveys information visually. This is a feast of visual interpretations--or visualizations--of information. Entertaining, inspirational and fun. Maps of all types, floorplans, diagrams, are transformed into art.
From the publisher:
Mysteries and folkways of New York City revealed in an entertaining collection of graphic art.
The life and legend of New York City, from the size of its skyscrapers to the ways of its inhabitants, is vividly captured in this lively collection of more than 250 maps, cross sections, owcharts, tables, board games, cartoons and infographics, and other unique diagrams spanning 150 years. Superstars such as Saul Steinberg, Maira Kalman, Christoph Niemann, Roz Chast, and Milton Glaser butt up against the unsung heroes of the popular press in a book that is made not only for lovers of New York but also for anyone who enjoys or works with information design.
