"Exquisite information... To make complex data not only understandable but gorgeous is about the clearest expression of Keats’ line about truth and beauty. That’s what you’ll find in TASCHEN’s new book Information Graphics: Complex ideas so beautiful, reading the fine print is almost optional."— National Post, Toronto, Canada
"There is no shortage of great books on data visualization. But count on TASCHEN to tackle a big conceptual challenge with a big, beautifully designed book: Information Graphics by art historian Sandra Rendgen explores the four key aspects of visualizing data – Location, Time, Category, and Hierarchy – through exemplary work from more than 200 projects, alongside essays by information architect and TED founder Richard Saul Wurman, Guardian Datablog editor Simon Rogers, Density Design's Paolo Ciuccarelli, and Rendgen herself."— Beattiesbookblog.com, Auckland, New Zealand
"Through 480 pages, Rendgen takes an in-depth look at how illustrated information has changed the way we organize, design, and communicate data. Information Graphics showcases 200 projects and over 400 examples of contemporary works complete with a fact sheet and explanation of methods and objectives."— Lostinasupermarket.com, Dallas, United States
„Mit Information Graphics hat der TASCHEN Verlag jetzt auf 480 Seiten eine Gesamtschau zur Geschichte und Praxis der visuellen Kommunikation vorgelegt. 200 Projekte und über 400 Beispiele zeitgenössischer Informationsgrafik aus aller Welt – zu Politik, Wirtschaft, Kultur, Medien, Bildung und vielem mehr laden zum Schauen, Staunen und Schmökern ein.“— tz, München, Germany
„Alle Bildbeispiele bieten einen verblüffend neuen, anregenden Blick auf die Welt, in der wir leben.“— Wirtschaftswoche, Düsseldorf, Germany
"Coordinado por la historiadora del arte Sandra Rendgen, Information Graphics reúne 200 proyectos infográficos creados por diseñadores provenientes de todo el mundo. Cada una de las más de 400 imágenes que contiene el libro viene acompañada por una ficha en donde se explica la metodología utilizada por los diseñadores a la hora de procesar los datos, y los objetivos que pretenden conseguir con la visualización."— Experimenta Magazine, Madrid, Spain
"The book itself provokes information overload with four hundred infographics about subjects from sleep to politics and four essays about the history of graphic design."— Artlog.com, New York, United States
"TASCHEN’s book is the most comprehensive I have seen concerned with modern data visualization... For those producing data visualizations the book provides some great inspiration for future projects, whilst those who simply enjoy looking at them will not be disappointed."— Spatial Analysis, London, United Kingdom
"It’s an extraordinary read, and one of the most handsome books you’re ever likely to own."— Dazed & Confused, London, United Kingdom
"Die Darstellung wirkt anspruchsvoll und bietet einen umfassenden Einblick in die Thematik. Sandra Rendgen hat es geschafft, ein eigenes Kunstwerk zu erschaffen, das selbst mit dem Leser zu kommunizieren scheint. Für Fachkundige und Interessierte ein gelungenes Meisterwerk, das als extrem gut bezeichnet werden muss."www.spielemagazin.de, Magstadt, Germany
