What many of you perhaps don't know, though, is that before becoming a successful opinion writer in 2008, Blow was director of infographics at the NYT and at National Geographic magazine. I was reminded of it recently, while browsing over my Malofiej awards book collection. Book 12 includes an interview with Blow conducted by Nigel Holmes a decade ago.
I asked the Malofiej friends for permission to reproduce it here. See all pages below. Then, click on any of them to enlarge it.
