I've talked several times on this blog about graphics as main illustration of the front page. Something I support, as an option, because of the possibilities of graphics for explaining the information at first sight. There's a "fear" about using big infographics on front pages, and sometimes editors use photos as if it was an obligation.
One of the newspapers which has the best use of infographics on A1 pages is The Independent (and its sunday edition The Independent on Sunday). They show their opinion and clear facts just taking a look to its cover.
And, as this is a visual journalism blog, Show, Don't Tell! Here you are a slideshow with the "infographic" front pages of the last 12 monthss.
