"Visual Complexity: Mapping Patterns of Information"


In 2011 Manuel Lima, who characterized himself on his website as an "Interaction Designer, Information Architect, and Design Researcher," published Visual Complexity: Mapping Patterns of Information through Princeton Architectural Press in New York. This spectacular, modernistically designed, full color book may best be characterized as two books in one. Its first 80 pages are a profound intellectual and visual interpretation of landmarks in information visualization from the ancient world through the early twentieth century. The remainder of the book illustrates, analyzes and classifies types of state of the art visualizations of complex information sets.
