Vintage Infodesign [39]

Our weekly journey in to the history of visualization

September 30, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

This post is brought to you by Infographic World.

 

Time to kick-off another working week, and that usually means one thing, here on Visual Loop: a look back at interesting, beautiful and inspiring examples of vintage visualizations, such as maps, diagrams, charts and infographics.

But our first pick of this round-up is actually neither of the above. And, as you can read on Frank Jacobs Strangee Maps’ blog post, we can’t even say for sure if it is ‘the real thing’. I mean, a map carved in stone that is anywhere from half a million to one million years old??

Read the post and make your own conclusions. And here’s the full list of today’s Vintage InfoDesign:
