Super-massive list of 172 visual explainer books

Super-massive list of 172 visual explainer books

30/05/24

While I read any book like a normal person, great visual explainer books are a weak spot. I think it's the childhood love for comics or creating scrapbooks in school using magazine and newspaper cut-outs. Over the last 10+ years, I have stuffed my study room with massive collection of visual explainer books (loosely-categories).
