Stefan Sagmeister's newest project encourages long-term thinking and reminds us that many things in the world are getting better. Originally conceived in 2020, as the world entered pandemic lockdown, Stefan Sagmeister has created a book that looks at the state of the world today, illuminates, through collected data, how far we have come and encourages us to think about where we can go from here.
Statistics are vividly brought to life as numbers are transformed into graphs, embedded in nineteenth-century paintings, embroidered canvases, lenticular prints and hand-painted water glasses.
The book includes a foreword by psychologist and leading authority on language and mind, Steven Pinker; a featured essay by graphic designer and historian Steven Heller; and a conversation between Sagmeister and Hans Ulrich Obrist, curator and artistic director of the Serpentine Galleries in London, will appeal to all visually inclined readers and provide a positive response to the tumultuous news cycle of recent years.
