Incredible Infographics

This Happy Monday, we're delighting in vintage infographics in all their beautifully illustrated glory

Infographics have long been considered one of the most aesthetically pleasing and digestable ways of presenting data and information. The popularity of Nicholas Felton’s brilliant annual reports prove that the art form is still going strong, but this Happy Monday, we've been enchanted by the beautifully engraved diagrams of the 19th century. Spanning celebrated geographical and astrological illustrator John Philipps Emslie's stunning depictions of everything from mountains to a telescopic view of the moon, a delicately coloured study of which plants grow at different altitudes and a whimsical map of "the open country of a woman's heart", we're sure you'll agree that facts and statistics have never looked so pretty.

Happy Monday! #anotherhappymonday
