Michael Deal, a remarkably talented graphic designer, has taken up a rather monumental project which he calls Charting the Beatles. While the title may sound simple, the breathtaking graphs that he’s created are anything but. Considering that I’m a huge fan of the Beatles and an absolute data nut, this project is absolutely enthralling for me.
My personal favorites include the collaboration chart, the self-reference chart, and the song key charts, all giving visual representation to an amazing period of music creation and influence and rock and roll. Deal’s charts are all visually lovely and vary widely from subject to subject–an absolutely must-read for music and chart geeks alike!
Man, I could look at these all day.
