Graphical summary of patient status (1994): Very cool article from the Lancet (medical journal) reproduced on Tufte's site, in which Tufte and a collaborator define a simple graphical representation of patient status information. Brilliant. Tufte packs more information and meaning into a two-dimensionsal space than anyone I've seen.
