Geoff McGhee for National Geographic highlights a handful of projects that form a genre that he calls “Steampunk” infographics. When I was remaking the Statistical Atlas with current data I didn’t have steampunk in mind, but I like it.

By the way, if you haven’t seen McGhee’s documentary on visualization and journalism from a few years back, it’s worth marking for later.
