Data Generation

I begin with scrapping NYTimes articles on best books at the end of each year. The python scripts allow you to generate a dataset, including book and author information from Goodreads, and best seller information using NYTimes books API.


The actual visualization work, developed with HTML, CSS, and Javascript. No serious framework or data bindings, except D3 and Lodash.
