"When it comes to infographics...the best work in this field grabs those eyes, keeps them glued, and the grip is sensual--and often immediate. A good graphic says 'See what I see!' and either you do or you don't. The best ones...pull you right in, and won't let you go."
--From the introduction by Robert Krulwich

The year's most "awesome" (RedOrbit) infographics reveal aspects of our world in often startling ways--from a haunting graphic mapping the journey of 15,790 slave ships over 315 years, to a yearlong data drawing project on postcards that records and cements a trans-Atlantic friendship. The Best American Infographics 2016 covers the realms of social issues, health, sports, arts and culture, and politics--including crisp visual data on the likely Democratic/Republican leanings of an array of professions (proving that your urologist is far more likely to be a Republican than your pediatrician). Here once again are the most innovative print and electronic infographics--"the full spectrum of the genre--from authoritative to playful" (Scientific American).
ROBERT KRULWICH is the cohost of Radiolab and a science correspondent for NPR. He writes, draws, and cartoons at Curiously Krulwich, where he synthesizes scientific concepts into colorful, one-of-a-kind blog posts. He has won several Emmy awards for his work on television, and has been called "the most inventive network reporter in television" by TV Guide.
