Whilst doing research I came across these wonderful data graphics from the 1930s. They take information about certain aspects of specific books and present them in this way. The graphics use a very limited colour scheme and what appears to be hand drawn visuals and typography. Each piece is very detailed and intricate. Although the style is quite outdated, I very much like these designs, and when I looked into the concepts behind each one I think they could be used as a resource to help inspire my visuals.
