Cave Paintings to the Web: Visual History of 100 World-Changing Diagrams (Brain Pickings)


From our earliest days, humans have used visual depictions to map the land, analyze the human body and organize the rest of our world. Brain Pickings highlights 100 Diagrams That Changed the World by investigative journalist and documentarian Scott Christianson.

The book chronicles the evolution of the modern world “through humanity’s most groundbreaking sketches, illustrations, and drawings, ranging from cave paintings to The Rosetta Stone to Moses Harris’s color wheel to Tim Berners-Lee’s flowchart for a ‘mesh’ information management system, the original blueprint for the world wide web.”
