And there were political moments, too. In the heat of the first wave of the Occupy movement, I produced this chart, which addressed the inherent unfairness of the alphabet. I passed it out around New York City. Some people took it with a grain of salt; others, with an entire shaker.
Salt, of course, was the source of one of the pieces I created for ILoveCharts that wasn’t exactly a chart. It’s in the book, so I won’t reprint it here. I will only remind you to go out and buy the book, so that you can experience the glory of the chart form in all its rational, irrational, sensible, senseless glory.
