about this project
The four infographic pieces that follow are about four books that defined or characterized my life at the time I read them. I let the content of the books and the way I was moved by them dictate the format of the infographics. The data I used is the data of my life. It’s all fact, as factual as memory can be.
“...believing every crack in
my soul could be chinked
with a book.“
I’m pretty sure the idea for these infographics came from this Barbara Kingsolver quote. Quotes are funny because when you hear one that resonates, you think, “I already knew that.” But someone else said it so much more eloquently. I knew when I read this quote I could do that. I could label the crazy times or intense changes in my life with a book that found its way to me and either helped me get through a hard time or helped shape that part of my life.
