From Danish writer Mikael Wulff and cartoon artist Anders Morgenthaler, a collection of information graphics that poke fun at societal quirks and everyday absurdities through made-up charts and graphs, including new, previously un-published infographics.
Established in 2011, Truth Facts has taken the internet by storm with its humorous and perceptive charts, graphs, and infographics that turn simple, everyday phenomenon into clever observations. Four-color and filled with funny and visceral graphics, Truth Facts puts the modern human experience into perspective.
These 144 intelligent and playful images explore societal quirks and everyday oddities such as:
The most dangerous foods according to dietary experts (hint: white bread trumps uranium and poisonous mushrooms)
The "cone of shame" as veterinary panacea
The social etiquette of escalators
The ratio of money to calories you really burn at the gym
Our sleeping patterns in relation to how much time we spend on social media and watching TV
The choices in coffee beverages twenty years ago compared to today
Playfully teasing readers even as it explores themes like perception vs. reality, this compendium of bizarre-but very true-facts prods us to laugh at ourselves, own up to our shortfalls, accept the strangeness of the world we live in, and carry on-happier and more connected to one another than ever before. In distilling simple observations about universal experiences into elegant charts and graphs, Truth Facts get to the heart of the paradoxical and wonderful world we all share.
