The Origin of (almost) Everything

Jennifer Daniel and her team developed a philosophy they termed the “Bart and Lisa approach” to designing infographics. “You create something that Bart Simpson would really like,” she explains—a graphic that will appeal to someone with a low-attention span, or a reader who will appreciate the big picture without getting into the granular details. At the same time, the illustration should work on a Lisa Simpson-level; it should be equally as engaging for those who spend a ton of time poring over the page—absorbing the details, appreciating the context—and who walk away having learned something new.

1939 Book on Graphs 

Willard Cope Brinton is credited as one of the pioneers of information visualization, and I just found out his 1939 book Graphic Presentation is available in its entirety at the Internet Archive. You can download it in various formats. The book was an update to his previous book from 25 years prior, Graphic Methods for Presenting Facts. It’s also at the Archive.
