Waterstones Says

The culmination of an awe-inspiring visual project, Atlas of the Invisible renders vast amounts of data - from global anxiety levels to the effects of climate change - accessible and understandable through incredibly detailed and beautifully designed cartography.

Discover the hidden patterns in human society as you have never seen them before - through the world of data.

In Atlas of the Invisible, award-winning geographer-designer team James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti redefine what an atlas can be. Transforming enormous data sets into rich maps and cutting-edge vizualisations, they uncover truths about our past, reflect who we are today, and highlight what we face in the years ahead. With their joyfully inquisitive approach, Cheshire and Uberti explore happiness and anxiety levels around the globe; they trace the undersea cables and cell towers that connect us; they examine hidden scars of geopolitics; and illustrate how a warming planet affects everything from hurricanes to the hajj.

Years in the making, Atlas of the Invisible invites readers to marvel at the promise and peril of data, and to revel in the secrets and contours of a newly visible world.
