Information Graphics (Taschen, April 2012), a 480-page doorstopper of a book that offers up a mind-boggling selection of infographics, many plucked from the furthest reaches of the media firmament. It has more than 400 examples, ranging from an illustration of stalled building projects in a Dutch design rag to a Nicholas Felton-designed chart of CNN.com traffic to a map of sonar and whale songs courtesy of a Danish geological institute.

I chose this infographic because I like the way they utilize the space to make it feel 3D. Altering the shades of the sides of objects really gives it a feeling of depth. I like the color palette they chose - since there is so much information, using too many colors would've made it too confusing.
