Data Sketches ( A K Peters/CRC Press)
Friday, 05 March 2021

In this book, described as  "A journey of imagination, exploration, and beautiful data visualizations", Nadieh Bremer and Shirley Wu document the creative process behind 24 data visualization projects, and combine this with powerful technical insights which reveal the mindset behind coding creatively. Exploring 12 different themes – from the Olympics to Presidents & Royals and from Movies to Myths & Legends – each pair of visualizations explores different technologies and forms, blurring the boundary between visualization as an exploratory tool and an artform in its own right.
