As disinformation and distortion increase in the digital world, design can play a crucial role in supporting and promoting quality of information in an accessible way. This selection of books is a showcase of the most outstanding data design work, visual journalism and editorial design. The case studies presented illustrate how typography and infographics, illustration, skillful branding, attention to detail and human curiosity combine to create innovative news design and visual storytelling. We hope these resources will inspire art directors, designers and media professionals, as well as anyone interested in the world behind information visualisation.
