Altas in a can

April 15, 2008

Some time ago I bought a copy of the World Geo-Graphic Atlas. I believe they are quite rare. The atlas was designed by Herbert Bayer and published in 1953 by the Container Corporation of America. The book is amazing with tons of information graphics as well as maps. Here are just a few samples from this truly geo-graphical treat.

BBC News

I’m not sure what it is about the BBC News  website redesign but it makes me feel uncomfortable? Is there too much space around things?  Is this a mad thing to say? It definitely works and It must be the most accessible news site on the planet? I really don’t know but somehow the design doesn’t feel right?
