087  |  VizKidz: Books on Data Visualization for Kids

Hey, we talk about a super lovely project on the show today!

Book illustrator and product designer Abigail Ricarte and data journalist Liv Buli join us to talk about their Kickstarter project, VizKidz, an illustrated book series designed to teach kids about data visualization.

The series features four lovely characters: Penelope Pie, Laney Line, Barnaby Bar, and Bertie Boxplot, each with a specific “personality.”

On the show we talk about how the project started, how they designed the characters, and what it takes to launch a data visualization project on Kickstarter.

If you are interested in buying the book or learning more about the project, check out their website: http://www.vizkidz.rocks/.

Enjoy the show!
