A fascinating read for both children and adults, it is suitable for children from age 8+. What is it that makes technology improve rather than stay static or even fall into decline? The answer is information.

Celebrate your curiosity in this book of information, offering:

- A beautiful look at the story of information; from the first languages and cave paintings through to how we communicate and record information today.
- Content written by world famous and multi-award winning author and illustrator, Chris Haughton.
- A global journey throughout history from the origination of language, how information has been passed on and recorded, how this has helped humans.

This book tells the story of how we came to collect information, and what it means for us. The ability to record information in the form of writing and collecting data has caused an explosion of technological progress. It hasn't always been like this. For a long time, human progress was very slow or static. At some points it felt like our progress even ran backwards!

Nowadays, we are used to technology improving all the time. Next year we will have better phones, cars, and technology. If we are able to record knowledge we can collect and share it. We can continue adding to it and it grows and grows. Learn all about how this works in The History of Information, through a mix of timelines, graphics and illustrations that clearly break down and explain each concept for kids and adults alike.
