If a picture is worth a thousand words just imagine the level of understanding you could accomplish by uniting the two as seen in the Good Magazine Transparencies. From the most complex political issues to the ridiculously mundane, Good Magazine Transparencies add a dash of color to the otherwise drab world of statistics.
If my entire education had been doled out in a series of Good Magazine Transparencies, I have no doubt that I would be a much more informed person. Good Magazine describes their transparencies as "a graphical exploration of the data that surrounds us." Never has China's one-child policy been so eloquently explained, never have I been so terrified of North Korea, or as disgusted with the average person's hygiene. That's the power of Good Magazine transparencies.
