Beautiful Visualization: The book

“Beautiful Visualization – Looking at data through the eyes of experts” is out (at least the ebook edition). I am proud to be among the authors, along with giants like Aaron Koblin, Fernanda Viega and Martin Wattenberg, Jer Thorp or Jessica Hagy. I mostly flipped through the book up to now, but from what I can see, it comprises a great collection of case studies and reflections by practitioners from the field. So if you always wondered about the stories and considerations behind great visualizations, this could be a very useful resource. My chapter deals with the process behind X by Y, and is available as a pre-print download (2.3MB pdf). I would love to see this book printed, too – if you feel the same, why not pre-order the print edition to speed up the process?

Also noteworthy: All royalties from this book will be donated to Architecture for Humanity.

    Hi Moritz,

    Wanted to say thank you for all the inspiring UI patterns that you have put out in the public domain over the years. I have begun to read the book ‘Beautiful Visualizations’ since yesterday and I am quite enjoying it.

    Keep up the awesome work.
