Over 500 butterflies swarm (in an orderly fashion) across this vibrant data-driven poster from Pop Chart Lab. Each hand-illustrated species is arranged taxonomically, and showcases the fluttering creature's dorsal wing. Some drawings even feature a cross section of the ventral underside, for an extra layer of scientific flair.
*Note: No butterflies were harmed in the making of this poster.
About Pop Chart Lab
In 2010, a book editor and a graphic designer joined forces with one modest goal: to render all of human experience in chart form.
They went on to amass no small renown (that is, a ton of renown) for their infographical treatments of the varieties of beer, the full array of culinary tools, a taxonomy of hip-hop, and dozens more mappings of cultural touchstones.
Now, with a small team of researchers, designers, and soldiers, Pop Chart Lab continues to assemble, sift, cull, and arrange massive amounts of cultural data into meaningful works of art and information.
