TolkienData - Mentions in Lord of the Rings
My mind often travels to the Middle Earth. For this reason I decided to create a dataviz ispired by Lord of the Rings and J.R.R. Tolkien's books. I looked at the frequency of characters mentions in Lotr. I created three bar charts to show the frequency in each chapter of the trilogy. Than I realized other 3 charts, trying to make them similar to a book (just for an aesthetic choice). In these graphs I reported the mentions in every single page of the books, so that it looks immediatly the presence of the characters throughout the story. 

In addition to this I showed all my 22 characters the best I can, underlining some of their attribute, like name, race, culture. On the right you can also read the first quote of the trilogy in which the character was mentioned. 
Take a look and have a nice trip in the Middle Earth!
