Visual Storytelling: Inspiring a New Visual Language, is a rich text detailing the history of how we process information and ideas through images. The book is full of visual references to educate and inspire the reader. Maps of all kinds, pie charts, graphs, sculptures of all shapes and sizes (indoor and outdoor), digital light shows, numbers, sound bites, buttons, dinner tables, and all sort of mechanisms to share information come together in the tome’s 251 pages. Visual Storytelling is the most obvious indication that the modern world is dependent on the visual image to make sense of the mass of data that is constantly circulating through it.
