Edward Tufte

Utne Reader visionary [Originally published as Edward Tufte in the January-February 1995 issue of Utne Reader]

| January/February 1995

Tufte has revolutionized information design with his “bright and splendid visions” of statistical graphics. A consultant to the New York Times and the federal government, he transforms complex, multidimensional statistical tables, schedules, maps, and timetables into a two-dimensional “flatland” of paper and computer screens without compromising their complexity or beauty. Tufte’s books, The Visual Display of Quantitative Information and Envisioning Information, are as concise and well crafted as his graphic style, containing illustrations as varied as Galileo’s diagrams and Constantine Anderson’s famous isometric map of Manhattan. He is a professor of political science and statistics at Yale University.
