Booker data

Tonight the 2012 winner of the Man Booker award will be announced, and walk away £50,000 richer and with a considerably increased level of sales. The Guardian has a very attractive set of images made up of data from the Booker from all the past years. 

I like these kind of images. They don’t really tell us anything we didn’t know (privileged white British males win most) although I quite like the new fact that no-one has ever won with their 12th novel. I am also, it turns out, now too old to be the youngest ever Booker winner. Sad times.
