Long before just about everybody was doing infographics, National Geographic was publishing some of the most gorgeous, absorbing and instructive picture stories in the world. This new book from TASCHEN looks like it’s managed to collect some of NatGeo’s best into a keeper (well, in addition to that big stack of magazines you have saved somewhere), titled (deceptively?) simply, “National Geographic Infographics”.

Growing up with these, I always loved the cutaways the best.
