The New York Times has a lovely set of graphics on their opinion pages today by an illustrator called Christoph Niemann.

There are shades here of an earlier posting – Graphing Song Titles.

Niemann’s work also includes some wonderful covers for the New Yorker. Both of these are fine examples of a picture telling a thousand words.

Niemann is also the author of a book called The Pet Dragon which teaches Chinese characters to children.

The galleries on his website are full of these rewarding images.
