A Timeline of Timelines

Last week we discussed linear chronology as being one way to understand and organise collections. For those exploring such methods I am including some links to the timeline as a graphic form. (Also suggestive for many other drawing formats).

Here is a timeline of timelines which contains some great descriptions and images of the way time has been drawn as a linear progression (and some deviations from this). And an essay on the ‘trouble’ with timelines here.

This visually rich book is by the same author and documents many more approaches to graphically representing time as a timeline. (This was probably mentioned before, it’s a favourite DS7 reference)!
