Martha Graham honoured by classiest Google Doodle yet

Another day, another Google Doodle celebrating an obscure birthday. This time it's for renowned American dancer and choreographer Martha Graham, who was born on this day 117 years ago.

Google Doodles are so common now that it'd probably be more newsworthy if Google decided to just go with its actual logo for a day.

By Pocket-lint's count we're now up to 84 for 2011, and that's only counting one for the 16 Mr Men efforts earlier this week.

However, this effort is pretty swish and possibly the classiest Doodle we've seen yet. It's animated and a sketched version of Graham spells out the word Google, in the form of modern dance.

Graham died at the ripe old age of 96 in 1991 in New York.
