This might be my favorite viz of the year, if not my favorite of all-time. Click on the image to go to the interactive version.

Best Practices:
  • The interactivity is amazing!
  • The way the viz gets created over time brings out the emotion of the story.
  • Visually stunning
  • Coloring the line by age at death (orange) and years stolen (gray) is really impactful.
  • The layout and overall design are perfect.
Recommended Enhancements:
  • None
