“The blue whale and the African elephant are two of the world’s biggest animals.” But how do their weights compare? A chart equates one 145-ton blue whale with 22 African elephants; one 6.5-ton African elephant with 9 cows; and one 1,550-pound cow with 35 puppies. In examples such as these, visual representations of numbers (e.g. 22 elephants, lined up in rows, across from one blue whale) give readers an idea of size, shape, length, and time as they relate to the animal kingdom. A metric conversion table is provided in the front matter, and an opening “About Infographics” section introduces the concept. Subsequent spreads feature graphics paired with text explanations, which themselves come under headings including “Moving Animals” and “Life Cycles.” Back matter consists of a glossary, further reading, link to publisher-selected Web sites, and an index.

Series Review
Though uneven in consistency, at their best, these collections of statistical information demonstrate the real value of well-designed infographics. Each volume contains a series of neatly designed full-page or full-spread graphic images with simply phrased explanatory captions. Many of the images are just arbitrarily sized silhouette illustrations with labels or even conventional pie and bar charts. Often enough, though, some imagination has been used to present information both numerically and visually at once—from a chart combining cloud types, shapes, and altitudes in Weather Infographics to silhouettes of various land animals placed on a speed line and a world map with selected (and labeled) country flags that are sized to reflect populations. Oxlade does not cite his sources, but leads to print and web resources are provided at the end.
