I recently got a copy of Manuel Lima's handsome new hardback volume, Visual Complexity: Mapping Patterns of Information. Its packed with lovely examples of information visualisation and network graphing, along with some insightful discussion. It provides a valuable complement to Lima's excellent Visual Complexity web catalogue.

The content of Lima's new book has some clear parallels to Atlas of Cyberspace, a book I co-wrote over a decade ago. (The Atlas is out of print now, but the full book is available as a free downloadable pdf and there are lots of secondhand copies around.)

The overall production design of Visual Complexity is also nicely done by Princeton Architectural Press. My only quibble really is with the cover design - a bit uninspiring I thought. Below is a sample page spread. I recommend purchase if you're interested in the varied and surprising ways to spatially represent information.
