Appreciating Willard Brinton’s data visualization


Excerpt from 100 years of Brinton, a website devoted to appreciating data visualization author Willard Brinton.

I passionately believe Brinton should be as well known as other pioneers of data visualisation (Playfair,Priestley, Minard) and modern authors (Few, Tufte, Cairo)

I agree. Below is an image from Brinton’s book, which is more about data visualization than about ocean liners, but I find both interesting.

Growth in the Length of Ocean Liners

I agree that Brinton’s book is awesome. It’s called Graphic Methods of Presenting Facts. You can read it below, for free.
