Today meets Yesterday


Time travel: A pictogram journey through now and thenIn this third installment in her pictogram series for TASCHEN, leading graphic designer Yang Liu brings the way we were face to face with the way we are. Hot on the heels of the bestselling predecessors, Today meets Yesterday deploys the same vivid pictogram pairings to explore the transformations, and the challenges, of our ever-evolving world.Liu has made her name with a combination of graphic precision and incisive observation of behavior patterns. In Today meets Yesterday, her eye for tastes and trends takes ambitious scope, juxtaposing past with present to explore fundamental shifts in society. Along the way, we encounter the tussle between competing ideologies, historic and current global dangers, our interaction with the environment, and the wholesale impact of technology on our ways of ways of living, learning, and loving, from online retail to the rise of the smombie. With an eye on everything from geopolitics to concentration spans, Liu s panorama incorporates the details of daily experience as much as the momentous happenings in history. Through Facebook, food waste, collectivism, and much more, Today meets Yesterday casts the familiar situation in a crisp and discerning light, bringing fresh awareness, as well as some ironies, to who we are and where we came from."
