# Oliver Byrne's amazing information graphics

Oliver Byrne (“Surveyor of Her Majesty’s settlements in the Falkland Islands and author of numerous mathematical works”) made a masterpiece of information graphics in 1847, giving forth the Elements of Euclid in a visual format.

You can see the whole entire thing (OK, actually just the first 6 books, but isn’t that enough?) at the University of British Columbia s Oliver Byrne’s edition of Euclid site. The pictures are very cool.
