    This pack includes the book Data Sketches, as well as an exclusive set of posters and postcards created by the authors and based on the book.

    In Data Sketches, Nadieh Bremer and Shirley Wu document the deeply creative process behind 24 unique data visualization projects, and they combine this with powerful technical insights which reveal the mindset behind coding creatively. Exploring 12 different themes – from the Olympics to Presidents & Royals and from Movies to Myths & Legends – each pair of visualizations explores different technologies and forms, blurring the boundary between visualization as an exploratory tool and an artform in its own right. This beautiful book provides an intimate, behind-the-scenes account of all 24 projects and shares the authors’ personal notes and drafts every step of the way.

    To celebrate Data Sketches' 1-year anniversary, Nadieh Bremer and Shirley Wu have created an exclusive set of posters and postcards based on their bestselling dataviz book.
