Take a look at the way the world has changed in a colourful new book by an award-winning artist. Buro 24/7 Middle East has the details...

Taschen has released another visually stunning book by Yang Liu. Titled Today Meets Yesterday, the third book in a series by the Berlin-based graphic designer – following East Meets West and Man Meets Woman – explores the evolution of society, putting together a story of the past versus the present through clever use of simple imagery.

Liu, renowned for spotting trends in society as well as its innate contemporary culture, focuses on the changes in a wide gamut of areas, from eating and shopping to networking and travelling. Technology also features heavily but just as important, Liu paints a rather bleak outlook for the nature of the world today, effectively raising awareness on environmental efforts.
