Show Me the Numbers: Designing Tables and Graphs to Enlighten Second Edition, by Stephen Few is described as "the simplest, most practical, and most comprehensive guide to table and graph design available" (inside book flap).
The JSON theme file used by this Power BI report attempts to implement Few's suggestions including his recommended color palettes.
The JSON file specifies how selected tables and visuals should be formatted. Because of their poor ability to communicate quantitative information, Few counsels against the use of visuals such as the pie, waterfall, and funnel charts. For this reason, I have not included formatting for "silly charts that are best forsaken".
The visuals and tables that are included in the JSON have been formatted according to Few's recommendations, to the best of my understanding and to the best of Power BI's capabilities.
Please don't hesitate to suggest any improvements. Please include the pertinent page number!
