Digital is the platform for the majority of our community’s work. Yet despite the hours of effort and refinement of our craft, much of our work will one day disappear.

Establishing a printed Nightingale Magazine gives us the opportunity to preserve our creations and acknowledge each other in a lasting way.

Get access to exclusive content you won’t find anywhere else! See Nightingale feature articles as you’ve never seen them before, including behind-the-scenes stories, interviews, reviews, and more!

It’s a chance to revel in creativity and indulge in the visual in data visualization.

Will you be shipping globally?

Nightingale has always taken a global approach, so we intend to fulfill our print publication globally as well. We plan to print our publication from two different printers to reduce distribution and shipping costs. Yes, it’s a lot of extra work, but we feel our global community deserves equal representation and access.

Here’s what a few leaders in our industry say about us:

Nightingale has been a constant source of fresh and insightful comment about our field. It has been especially strong in allowing new and diverse authors to share their views. We thrive on the breadth of our knowledge, and Nightingale has led the way.” ~Andy Cotgreave
Tableau, Senior Technical Evangelist

“The diversity, quality, and regularity with which Nightingale has been publishing Data Visualization articles since its start has made it indispensable in teaching (all experience levels) about the field and its history, starting conversations, and geeking out over the smallest tidbits, historic visuals, and more.” ~Nadieh Bremer, Dataviz Designer & Developer

“From theoretical discourse, through historical legacies of the field’s pioneers, to the practical stories of everyday practitioners, and the thematic studies of critical techniques, Nightingale has gone from nothing to absolutely everything, seemingly, in the blink of the eye!” ~Andy Kirk, Author
