What is a Flourish Story

A Flourish story is a way of presenting a number of visualisations or parts of visualisation like a carousel or slides format, in order to narrate an event, a sequence, or for storytelling. Flourish stories look like a slideshow/carousel. 

Just as visualisations can be created, edited, published and embedded, Flourish stories can be created, edited, published and embedded into your stories. Take a look at a Flourish Story below. Click on the arrow buttons to navigate the slides and watch how it tells a story.
