Alberto Cairo, one of the best infographists all over the world and currently teaching in the University of North Caroline (USA) has recently published a book on Infographics: Infografía 2.0 [Infographics 2.0]. In some 130 pages, Cairo explains the trends from aesthetics to scientific infographics. Professor Cairo analyzes the infographics published in the New York Times between September 2007 and April 2008.
Alberto Cairo is preparing a new book in English: Information Visualization in the News: Print and Multimedia Infographics Storytelling. A lot of people (including myself) are waiting for this book, Alberto!
