The Atlas of the Real World
by Daniel Dorling, Mark Newman, Anna Barford

The latest book from worldmapper.org creators Daniel Dorling, Mark Newman and Anna Barford includes 366 digitally modified maps ‘depicting the areas and countries of the world not just by their physical size, but by their demographic importance' ranging from toy importation to nuclear weapons. Seeing world maps manipulated in this way gives a simplistic elegance to complicated topics, as the atlas makes clear in one image what some books take hundreds of pages to explain.

This piece is a part of Resources from the Worldchanging Library. Throughout this series, we will present the best resources from our archives. To view the complete list, please click here.
