Where can I find some great infographics?

I'm trying to find well-designed infographics/infoporn/data visualization that are either humorous, informative, or just interesting. I'm specifically looking for pictures (ie static, not interactive) and preferably ones large enough to easily print at poster-size. I don't really have a preference for topic or subject matter.

You could have a look through information aesthetics and, both have loads of good stuff.

I haven't read them, but from what I hear Edward Tufte's books are the bee's knees for visually communicating information.

The Nixlog Infographics blog.

Website of Edward Tufte, patron saint of infographics.

This map is a totally awesome infographic.

The Powers of Ten poster is also cool.

I have a thing for the nytimes infographics, too. One of my favorites was the image of all the places space shuttles have been hit by debris.

This blog is dedicated to interesting examples of data visualisation. I have it on my Google Reader because some fantastic and interesting things pop up on there.

Tons of weird maps, my pick would be the Eisenhower Interstate System (second post down currently). They also link to a lot of other nice map places, e.g. Library of Congress where you can get large versions.
