Spain and the 50 years of ETA


This is an visualization/illustration that I’ve made for an article in Visão, Portugal best selling newsmagazine.

The story was about the 50 years of ETA and I wanted to show every attack that ETA did in Spain that lead to a killing.

We’ve set a scale for the circles and to help understand the number of victims I’ve placed their names as a back ground.
This visualization wasn’t meant to be an exact tool to allow the readers to see every single attack; instead the goal was to present an idea of the large number of attacks and it’s victims and have a visual impact of this drama.

    Did you organize the names according to anything such as date of attack?

    Hi Justin,

    Yes, the names on the background are organized by date of attack. Thank you for asking

  3. Just one small detail. visão is no longer the best selling newsmagazine. Sábado already took that from them.

      Hum António that’s a looooooooonnnnnnnnggggggggg talk! 😉 There are some different ways of counting the numbers that lead to different opinions. If you look at the sales (both subscribers and stand sales) Visão still sells more. Sábado may print more per week. Either way they are both great newsmagazines with good journalism.
