This print is designed to be printed and displayed at 32″x48″. It is also available at 24″x36″, but please note that at the smaller size the text, though legible, is significantly smaller.
This large-scale print is like nothing else available on the history of the American presidency. It places each president in historical context, visualizing a remarkable range of political, social, and economic measures to succinctly tell the story of the presidency. Narratives are displayed within the larger context of American political history by aggregating and annotating hard data on population, presidential elections, Congress, the Supreme Court, the Cabinet, the U.S. economy, and the federal budget and debt. The Timeplot provides a new lens into American political history; it is not intended to be absorbed at a glance, but rather to be visited and revisited over time.
Because we take pride in our work, we are pleased to offer our customers a premium product: the Timeplot is printed on highest-quality 100-lb archival paper and measures a full 48 x 32 inches, much larger than a standard wall poster.
The printing process is certified “green” by the Forest Stewardship Council and uses elemental chlorine-free paper.
