Hi all, does anyone have a simplified graphic that you use to illustrate the rising cost of textbooks over time? There's this, but it's really busy: https://www.aei.org/carpe-diem/chart-of-the-day-or-century-7/

Thank you!

Hi Amy,

Inclusiveaccess.org uses a simplified graphic to represent textbook cost vs. inflation over a shorter span of time: https://www.inclusiveaccess.org/administrators

Hi all, thank you for the replies and suggestions! I wanted to share back that Jonathan Poritz has a really clear version of the chart on his website which is licensed CC BY SA. Here's the chart and here's the page for context
