This month’s #SWDChallenge by guest author, Mike Cisneros, inspired me to put to use a data sample I tracked in Observe, Collect, Draw: A Visual Journal by Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec. If you haven’t yet picked up this book, I encourage you to do so! It’s a diary that inspires you to collect data on anything and everything, making you appreciate all of the details in your life. I also bought Dear Data by the same authors. Dear Data is a beautifully illustrated book of postcards Giorgia and Stefanie exchanged with each another for a full year. It’s hard to try to describe just how beautiful and unique these books are! My advice: Just be sure to buy Dear Data in the Flexibound format (instead of Kindle) for the best experience.
