Sentence and Sensibility

"She had a lively, playful disposition, which delighted in anything ridiculous." Jane Austen may have been referring to Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice, but we think it's an acute characterization of Jane Austen herself—and perhaps you, too. In this visual taxonomy of her greatest quips by Tim and Aurelia Sanders, you'll delight in sage advice, dark humor, and quotes about your favorite characters from Mr. Darcy to Emma. Organized by novel and then further categorized by mood, the result is this charming chart that may perchance have you speaking in Georgian era English. Made in Seattle, Washington.

Tim and Aurelia Sanders think people should enjoy more mirth. They mixed together data visualization, writing, and humor to create artwork that was smart as well as funny. Their process begins with a mix of ideas and sketches, which are gradually refined through research, experimentation, and "occasional hair pulling." Timothy employs his background as an art director and playwright, and Aurelia keeps their projects well edited and on track. "It's a great pleasure to see a passerby stop at one of our posters, lean in close, and start to laugh," they say.

Have a peek at Tim's sketchbooks to see how his thought process works as he creates new posters.
