Dear Data
A Friendship in 52 postcards

by Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec

After lots of pencil-sharpening and scribbling-outs, we are proud of our book! This 300-page, large-format, flexibound book is something special, and different from what you’ve seen on our website. Along with presenting our fifty-two postcards, we’ve also included newly-drawn illustrations explaining what we've learned about our lives in data, highlighting how everyone can become a data collector.

Dear Data Postcards Kit
For Two Friends to Draw and Share

by Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec

Hello Dear Data Friends!
Because so many of you are drawing your own data, we were inspired to launch the Dear Data Postcard Kit! 

Two sets of blank postcards (with data prompts!), Dear Data prints, and instructions for how to start drawing your data, all neatly packaged so you can send one half to a friend / future pen pal and keep one for yourself!
