A book: a world full of images, flavors and …colors. Can you really imagine the colors of your favorite novels? Jaz Parkinson has created color charts for different classic works of literature to visually represent the novels’ colorful worlds, building mini rainbows that correspond to the most prominent colors of each work.

How (many pixels) far is it to Mars?

April 6, 2013 § Leave a comment

If the Earth were 100 pixels wide, the Moon would be 3000 pixels away. Mars, at its closest, would be 428,000 pixels away. At the current state of space technology, it will take around 150 days to get to Mars.

Who sang what?

Sometimes you discover online something that combines two things you love and then you realize that all that procrastination was actually worth it. So for today’s pleasure combo I present to you one three Beatles infographs, charting the instrumentation of all of their songs, in their three phases.

I consider the haircut chart a bonus:

Never stop looking up

February 12, 2013 § Leave a comment

Looking at the windows and not outside a window. This is the concept behind The Windows of New York project. Graphic designer José Guizar has never stopped wandering around New York city and always looking up: at the windows of each building. And then, he decided to start recording and illustrating the city’s facades and windows.

As he says ‘The Windows of New York project is a weekly illustrated fix for an obsession that has increasingly grown in me since chance put me in this town. A product of countless steps of journey through the city streets, this is a collection of windows that somehow have caught my restless eye out from the never-ending buzz of the city. This project is part an ode to architecture and part a self-challenge to never stop looking up’.

In the project’s website, each window appears with the address (street & area), where it is located.
