Tufte Trump

I’ve had several readers write me in response to my post Monday about the Periodic Table of Data Visualization. The emails can be easily summarized: “Shame on you. Edward Tufte’s book trumps all.” I’ve spent some time with Tufte’s book The Visual Display of Quantitative Information (though I don’t own a copy) and it is pretty fantastic. That funny looking chart on the cover is actually an ingenious train schedule.
