Chart the history of the world through this collection of the most significant plans, sketches, drawings, and illustrations over the last 32,000 years. This book is particularly interesting if you’re in the graphic design arena, but it’s just as enthralling if you care anything about the progress of mankind. From cave paintings to the creation of the iPod, you’ll get a glimpse of how people have recorded innovations and breakthroughs, and maybe, just maybe, that’ll inspire your own.
