The World as 100 People: A Visual Guide to 7 Billion Humans
Illustrated by Aileen Lord
Fascinating facts about the 7 billion people that inhabit our planet. What would the world look like if the 7 billion people on this planet were presented as 100 individuals? This beautifully illustrated and informative infographics book reexamines the world’s population with fascinating and often sobering results. Covering diverse subjects such as demography, education, technology, and health, The World as 100 People reveals that 61 people are Asian, 15 are African, 10 come from Europe, and 14 are from the Americas. Fifty-one people live in cities, yet 36 lack basic access to sanitation. Twenty-one people are overweight, 15 are undernourished, and 1 is starving. Fourty individuals are regular Internet users, and 21 have a Facebook page. Perhaps most shockingly of all, 48 people currently live on less than $2 per day while 1 person owns 48 percent of all the world’s wealth. With bold infographics from designer, illustrator and artist Aileen Lord, The World as 100 People highlights the reality of the world we live in. It is enlightening and thought-provoking and will ensure that you’ll never look at the world’s population in the same way again.
