The Greatest Books infographic details the most highly regarded written works of the last few hundred years.

Ranking books like Huckleberry Finn and The Great Gatsby based on numerical score, this infographic is perhaps a little bit biased, but gives credit where it is due. In addition to sectioning the data by score, the chart also divides information by the century in which the work was created in, allowing for even more precision. The piece itself is well-designed, and features minimal embellishment and thematic graphics. Using books as a way to illustrate the popularity of authors, this chart comes together nicely, and reads as professional.

Though readers might debate the ideas put forth by this infographic, the data included and the approach to visualization in this piece makes it a standout chart.
