Guru on Paper: Edward Tufte

As requested by Jon Hicks,
I present to you none other than one of my favourite gurus: Edward Tufte. From
his book Envisioning Information
to his latest essay on
, the man has changed my views on (information) design and has
been an inspiration ever since I made my first chart.

Through the magic of bits and bytes I have teleported a younger Edward Tufte
to the twenty-first century! As you can see he is giving a presentation on good
design. Somehow that particular slide looks familiar… Can it be that Tufte
has been notified of the latest
revolution in blogosphere
? Has he come to realize that the new generation
is ready to take on the living legends?

So what guru shall I draw next? Mention your favourite in the comments.
