This infographic Christmas Card was a self-initiated project inspired by a conversation with a friend regarding the best Christmas song of all time.
The Pogue's 'Fairytale of New York' topped both of our personal charts – but we were surprised to learn that it never actually made it to number one (beaten in 1987 by the Pet Shop Boys' Always on My Mind').
This discovery set my mind to wonder how many other great songs and artists had missed out on the number one spot. Could I create a Christmassy visual to represent every number one – and indeed every number two – hit single of all time?
A limited run of A6 cards have been printed by the good people at moo.com. Printed on a 600gsm board comprising Mohawk Superfine Paper, each card has a striking thread of blue running through it's middle. I'm likely to have some left over so if you're not already on my Christmas Card list but would like to get your hands on one – get in touch!
In the words of Shakin' Stevens...have a Blue Christmas...
