Happy 4th of July America! In a celebratory visual fashion we think you’ll enjoy this fascinating look at the history of the old Stars and Stripes through history… in fact, back to before it was even the Stars and Stripes at all.

This patriotic print from Pop Chart Labs traces the flag through 48 versions, beginning with the star-less “Rebellious Stripes” of 1767 and finishing with the 50-star flag we’ve flown since 1960 (too bad for people who bought the 49-star version of 1959). You’ll definitely want to check out the zoomable view of this poster here. [Read more...]

These drinks in many ways define the characters in the literature and films we love, while also instilling a healthy thirst in many of us. Now Pop Chart Labs has produced a delicious new poster honoring 49 of these story based beverages. [Read more...]

Compendium of Shapes You Forgot From Geometry Class

Tuesday 10.30.2012 , Posted by

The folks over at Pop Chart Labs have done it again, producing another extensive, poster-based charting of beautiful information. This time though, rather than focusing on beer breweries or even celebrity hairstyles, they are getting geometric. Their new florescent design, The Synoptic Scheme of Shapes, points out just how much we all slept through geometry class… or maybe it just shows how much fun shapes can be when you aren’t getting tested later. My favorite part? I finally figured out the name of my long-time favorite shape: a superellipse. [Read more...]
