I’ve always been some kind of a fan of Edward Tufte since I discovered his beautiful exquisite books. You have to check it out if you are interested in visual representation of information.
Today I was searching for a blog by or on Tufte and I stumbled upon the sparklines idea, it’s already a few years old, but there’s now a new draft of the sparklines chapter from Tufte’s forthcoming book “Beautiful Evidence“.
- Computer implementation of sparklines on Tufte’s website
- CSS (Python code to generate it)
- and more if you google for it…
