Cool old stuff
This print is from a book with the longest title ever:
Encyclopaedia Londinensis; or, Universal Dictionary of Arts, Sciences, and Literature, Comprehending, Under One General Alphabetical Arrangement, all the Words and Substance of Every Kind of Dictionary Extant in the English Language . In which the Improved Departments of the Mechanical Arts, the Liberal Sciences, the Higher Mathematics, and the Several Branches of Polite Literature, are Selected from the Acts, Memoirs, and Transactions, of the Most Eminent Literary Societies, in Europe, Asia, and America.
So, now that you’ve taken a breath, head to the site and check out the beautiful typography that John Wilkes, a printer, bookseller and stationer from Sussex uses to describe complex philosophical and logical arguments. These are great examples of how an information graphic can make a difficult concept easier to understand (though I am still a little hazy!).
