The Little Book of Shocking Global Facts

Barnbrook Studio

Released by FIELL Publishing, The Little Book of Shocking Global Facts questions the status quo of global politics and highlights the inequalities and iniquities of rampant globalization. This small yet ethically driven book is a powerful visual manifesto by the world’s most respected graphic designer, Jonathan Barnbrook and his studio.

Little Book of Shocking Global Facts

How is it that the developed world spends billions of dollars annually on weaponry, while the poor of the developing world have no access to education, medicines or even clean drinking water? What exactly is the relationship between cheap goods on the high street and the wage slavery of sweatshops? How have large corporations branded the world in which we live?

Little Book of Shocking Global Facts

The Little Book of Shocking Global Facts addresses these questions and many more, through its thought- provoking imagery and the persuasiveness of its first-rate research. It looks at international issues such as military spending, health, education and business and concludes that globalisation without restraint can be a highly destructive force.

Little Book of Shocking Global Facts

One of the most striking elements of this book besides the facts themselves, is the way in which they are illustrated – the interaction between text and visual is incredible. Strong, innovative imagery combined with disturbing yet intriguing facts about our world, make this an important manifesto for global change that will undoubtedly change its readers’ hearts and minds.
