Synopsis

The Manmade World How Our World Works in Maps and Infographics by Jon Richards, Ed Simkins

This is not just another atlas! From the use of tablets around the world to the busiest international call lines; from the relationship between population and emission levels to freshwater supplies versus the largest populations without access to clean water, The Manmade World takes a unique look at our globe. Using innovatively designed maps alongside infographics, graphs and icons, this book explores the bigger picture of topics such as natural resources, communication, infrastructure and global trade. Explore in-depth how goods are transported around the globe, who has the tallest buildings, where space missions have been launched from and how the production and trade of palm oil affects people and the environment. The maps not only give an overview of location, but also provide a wealth of fascinating information that is beautifully designed. Written and illustrated by the award-winning Jon Richards and Ed Simkins, this book is another perfect example of how innovative design can deliver facts and figures in an absorbing and immediate way.
