This is a clickable imagemap version of the diagram found on page 64 of Edward Tufte's book Beautiful Evidence. The original was made in 1936 by Alfred Barr. I have attempted to use the original colors and typeface but web browsers and operating systems being what they are yours may not render this as intended.

I wrote a blog entry about it here.
