This research monograph sets out an original, theoretically rigorous account of the historical evolution of infographics and data visualization in news media and mass communication. It represents the first serious attempt to explore the rise of data visualization as a popular, cultural phenomenon. The author employs an innovative methodology (and method of analysis), towards contextualizing the rise of these forms in popular culture through six historical phases; the proto-infographic; the classical; the improving; the commercial; the ideological; and the professional. Given the potential scope of this topic, the author situates this book specifically within the UK.
