100 print infographics of 2014 - pt I

The most awaited of all our 2014 recap posts is here

January 15, 2015

And it’s finally time for the most awaited of all our mega-compilations with our favorites of 2014. This is the first part of the 100 infographics that somehow illustrate the tale of the year that just came to an end. The events, the personalities, the scandals, controversies, conflicts and acts of terror and bravery, all explained in beautiful pieces of visual journalism.

It’s always important to remind our readers that this selection is based upon the works featured week after week on our This is Visual Journalism column (published very Thursday). So we avoid to say that this are the ‘best of the year'; instead, they’re an excellent sample of the overall quality of the infographics submitted to us by the community, or handpicked by our team of curators.

In this particular round up, we tried to showcase not only the most impressive works from the pages of the Times of the Post, but also those published by much smaller newsrooms, all over the world. You’ll see here infographics from almost two dozen countries, tackling all sorts of issues related to the major events of 2014.

Hope you enjoy the first part of this post, that we divided in two:
