You Asked For a Visual Capitalist Book… We’re Making It Happen!

Published

on

For years, Visual Capitalist has created the best infographics on markets, technology, energy, and the global economy. And over that time, we’ve been asked many times when our work would be available in print form…

So today, we are excited to announce our new book called “Visualizing Change”.

The book, which explores how our world is shifting, will be made from our best infographics by adapting them to print. We’ll also be adding tons of new visualizations, too.

But we need your help to get it off the ground…

Our Vision

We’ve always dreamed of making a book – but if we did it, we wanted to do it right!

A proper Visual Capitalist book would need to be loaded with world-class infographics, and to be designed with a hard-cover that would look stunning on your desk or coffee table.

And so two months ago, the idea of “Visualizing Change” was born…

The aim? To take a big picture look at our increasingly complex world, and to examine the many ways we are being impacted by new technology, shifting human geography, and the evolution of money, markets, and the economy.

How You Can Help

Creating and printing a hard-cover book can be expensive and time-consuming at the very best of times – but it’s even harder when we are dealing with hundreds of pages of complex data visualizations and infographics.

We’re still a small team, so the time-intensive design and printing processes are significant costs to handle upfront!

That’s where you come in: by pre-ordering the book on Kickstarter, you can help us reach our funding goal to get this ambitious book created, published, and printed.

Funding is all or nothing – so if we make our funding goal, the book gets made.

An Exclusive Opportunity

Not only will you get a copy of this visually groundbreaking book – but, to sweeten the deal, we’ve added all kinds of other awesome posters, prints, signed books, swag, and personalized options to our Kickstarter campaign page.

By pre-ordering before 12PM on October 31st, 2017, you’re not only helping our book become a reality – but you’re also able to get exclusive items that have been custom-made by the Visual Capitalist team especially for this campaign.

For example, below is our “Creator’s Box”, which comes with the book as well as goodies like mini-books (looking behind the scenes, and explaining the secrets behind how we make infographics) and other one-of-a-kind things.

Don’t Miss Out!

By going to the Kickstarter page right now, you can:

  • Learn more about the upcoming book “Visualizing Change”
  • Watch a video where our team outlines our vision for the book
  • See the proposed themes, chapters, and book specs
  • See mockups of the cover, layout, and posters

And of course, you can also pre-order the book or any of the other items, like posters, that are custom-made for this campaign.

If you back the campaign early with a pledge, it also helps the book generate early momentum to ensure that it gets fully funded.

Thank you so much for your support, and for being a supporter of Visual Capitalist!
