You can see when bad weather hit or a battle was fought and the numbers of soldiers lost. No computer needed. Map by Charles Joseph Minard. Sourced from Edward R. Tufte's Visual Explanations.

Artist and Object: Edward Tufte and Hammer. My response to Tufte and the object, a map showing the travel involved in the manufacturing of the hammer, from raw materials to store. Also, first ever experience of Illustrator.
