Iconographic Encyclopædia


Worlds poster


Each of the original subjects in Iconographic Encylopædia stands on its own as an impressive feat in writing and illustration. A subject can be considered its own world of information, which was the basis for the images above. Each subject gets its own otherworldly landscape nearly entirely driven by the data within:

Closeup of stars
The number of stars is based on the number of figure references in the description. More references = more stars.
Closeup of hills
The hills are based on the number of references to figures every 10,000 characters in the text. Farthest = entire description, middle = middle section, closest = beginning. More references = higher hills.
Closeup of moon
The moon’s size and height in the sky is based on the number of HTML characters in the description. More characters = higher and smaller moon.
