As a visual learner I found this synopsis of Cosmigraphics: Picturing Space Through Time in 4,000 Years of Mapping the Universe by Maria Popova very interesting and would like to share it with you.

I particularly like the thinking that has gone into the development of illustrations that deal with very complex concepts and which aim to convey these to a broad audience. It’s a different way of storytelling though pictures.
