Cartographies of Time

Kinda late getting this post in, and I can’t find the cool flowchart of pre-to-post grunge Seattle bands I was going to use as an example of a pen-and-ink graphic approach to visual representation of multiple, intersecting strands of chronological change. So I’ll just say that this was one enjoyable read, that I’ll definitely be keeping this book lying around as a “coffee table book” for guests and family to peruse, and that I found the central thesis–that the timeline is not some obvious, purely utilitarian function that evolved naturally from the study from history but actually a product of modernity and the print revolution–to be both surprising and enlightening.
