Infographic Inspiration: Charts from 1900s

Infographics have gotten much popularity lately but essentially they are products of information design and have been used for a very long time to help people understand complex or raw information. A true inforgraphic doesn’t simply add pictures to words or summarize articles, it should be a visualization of information that’s hard to comprehend on it’s own. Today I stumbled upon some very old and very beautiful true infographics illustrating Black History.

The three colored versions are available in the Library of Congress Online Catalog. The black and white versions have been compiled for a reconstruction of  The exhibit of American Negro by professor Eugene F. Provenzo Jr. of School of Education, University of Miami which was originally produced by W. E. B. DuBois, Thomas Calloway and the Historic Black Colleges for the Paris 1900 International Exposition.

    Very nice examples for inspiration!
    Before I stumbled on this post, I was similarly inspired by the statistical atlases of the 1890’s and 1900’s.

    I decided to try to recreate some of the graphs using more modern means:

    Thanks again!

    Those are some great finds — and from Atlanta, Georgia. I was curious about where infographics started and this is what I found… http://woodblog.org/the-history-of-infographics/
