Edward Tufte on Megan Jaegerman’s News Graphics

Megan Jaegerman's News Graphic: Hockey Goalie [not my image, naturally]

Edward Tufte:

Megan Jaegerman produced some of the best news graphics ever while working at The New York Times from 1990 to 1998. Her work is smart, finely detailed, elegant, witty, inventive, informative. A fierce researcher and reporter, she writes gracefully and precisely. Megan has the soul of a news reporter, who happens to use graphs, tables, and illustrations–as well as words–to explain the news. Her best work is the best work in news graphics.

I like her graphic, above, that illustrates how hockey goaltenders stop shots.
