In an animation by Andrew Khosravani, Hannah Fry of The Royal Institution tells the rather fascinating tale of nothing, or rather, zero. To wit:

Once upon a time, zero wasn’t really a number. Its journey to the fully fledged number we know and love today was a meandering one. Today, zero is both a placeholder, and tool, within our number system signifying an absence of a value, and as a number in its own right.

A comprehensively researched poster by Pop Chart Lab. To wit:

…the progression of Graphic Design from the Victorian era into the modern digital age. Each memorable style of graphic expression is delineated here by its respective design elements and corralled into movements tracing back nearly 200 years. From the finials and fronds of Art Nouveau to the Weimar utility of the Bauhaus to the taxonomical, sense-making project of Data Visualization.
