@PenguinUKBooks I'd recommend @erinmorgenstern's NIGHT CIRCUS to Jane Eyre. I don't know why, I just think she'd enjoy it. #RealReaders

Fantastic. That's all folks! Huge thanks to James & Oliver (aka. @theinfocapital) for joining us today. Happy publication day! #InfoCapital
.@PenguinUKBooks the book is not an atlas. We wanted to start conversations and to inspire others to make their own graphics. #InfoCapital
Retweeted by Penguin Books UK
.@theinfocapital OK guys, final question. What is the main thing you want readers to take away from this book? #InfoCapital
.@theinfocapital Rightio, so to anyone else out there who's making graphics - where do you get your ideas? #InfoCapital
.@PenguinUKBooks …Lndn would have Crossrail changing transport and data will be ever more personalised to Londoners #InfoCapital

.@PenguinUKBooks Some things in London take time to change, but many things would be different for example... #InfoCapital
Retweeted by Penguin Books UK
.@theinfocapital So, would you consider doing this book for another city, or on an even larger scale, perhaps for Britain? #InfoCapital
.@theinfocapital If you were to publish this book in 10 years, what do you think the major difference would be? #InfoCapital
.@PenguinUKBooks O: I couldn’t believe how much info London collects and shares... #InfoCapital
Retweeted by Penguin Books UK
.@PenguinUKBooks J: The breadth and depth of London’s data was always surprising. From historic streets to dating preferences - we found it.

.@theinfocapital Oliver, as an American, why should someone living outside London read this book? #InfoCapital
.@theinfocapital What was one of the most surprising things you learnt about London from your research? #InfoCapital
.@PenguinUKBooks O: I’ll never forget hiking to Blackheath Point for a sunset or getting caught in the rain on the Serpentine #InfoCapital
Retweeted by Penguin Books UK
.@PenguinUKBooks O: I’ll leave it to readers to pick a favourite. In terms of most memorable, I’d have to say Protected Vistas #InfoCapital

.@theinfocapital And do you have a favourite page in the book? (You can each pick one!) #InfoCapital
Interesting. OK @theinfocapital, moving on. So what, to you, makes a good #infographic? #InfoCapital
.@theinfocapital And what kept you sane while trying to make sense of millions of data points? #InfoCapital
.@PenguinUKBooks We first started kicking ideas around 2 years ago, but when we got down to it, the book took about 9 months #infocapital
Retweeted by Penguin Books UK
.@theinfocapital There is a LOT of data in there & the #infographics are quite intricate. How long did the whole project take? #InfoCapital
.@PenguinUKBooks we like to think it’s 100 new portraits of a very old city in a very new way #infocapital
Retweeted by Penguin Books UK
