Classic Times Infographics

0813infographic.jpgFor all the newspaper/graphic design geeks in the crowd, we just stumbled upon a collection of Megan Jaegerman‘s infographics for the New York Times. From Edward Tufte:

“Megan Jaegerman produced some of the best news graphics ever while working at The New York Times from 1990 to 1998. Her work is smart, finely detailed, elegant, witty, inventive, informative. A fierce researcher and reporter, she writes gracefully and precisely. Megan has the soul of a news reporter, who happens to use graphs, tables, and illustrations–as well as words–to explain the news.
Her best work is the best work in news graphics.”
