Best American Infographics of 2013
The Best American Infographics of 2013, a new book compiled by Gareth Cook, has an introduction by David Byrne. Byrne says a good infographic is "elegant, efficient, and accurate," but also revealing when they can "engender and facilitate an insight." The book is such a collection. Here is one showing the frequency distribution of births throughout a calendar year.
And another showing how the DNA analysis of canine genes cluster into four broad categories of dogs.
The video above gives more examples. It's easy to get engrossed in this elegant and insightful book.
