Winner of the 2013 Cannes Bronze Book Design Lion and the Epica awards, "Life in Five Seconds" is a gift for anyone with a good sense of humor and a short attention span. H-57 is a design and advertising with two decades of award-winning work in advertising and the masterminds behind the online infographic "History of... " series, which has amassed worldwide popularity. Told in ingenious pictographs that are witty, provocative, and to the point, "Life in 5 Seconds" takes on 200 important events, inventions, great lives, wonders of the natural world, and cultural icons and boils away the useless details to give you the pure essence of knowledge in a bold and irreverent set of illustrations that speak to today's caffeine-charged, jet-fueled, information-overloaded society. You'll laugh out loud as you finally understand the differences between Satan and Santa Claus; explore the vibrancy of artists from Beethoven to Banksy; compare the masonry in the Great Wall of China to that of the Berlin Wall; weigh the importance of Elvis; deconstruct the genius of Ikea; play with the history of video games; and plumb other vitally important holes in your knowledge.
