How long do animals live?

From a post at Information is Beautiful about the history of information graphics:

Then there’s ISOTYPE — the International System Of TYpographic Picture Education. It was an early infographical form, originated in the 1930s by Austrian philosopher and curator Otto Neurath “as a symbolic way of representing quantitative information via easily interpretable icons.” Again, it’s eye-popping how modern these images look. Despite being fashioned from woodcuts and hand-printing methods. Gorgeous.

    I can’t tell you how much I love this. The information, the simple design. Love.

    Grace will be stoked to know she got Flocked today. She just discovered Twitter, you know.
