Dear Data

People who work with data often don't innovate on presenting it.  Tufte's classic books presented new options for a generation, but maybe dated. I like a recent book called "Dear Data". As authors say, "For our project Dear Data, each week throughout a year we collected and measured different types of personal data relating to our lives and then visualized it as a drawing on a postcard which we then sent as a type of “slow data” transmission of our personalities and our days to the other person." Beautifully communicative visualizations, acquired by MoMA
