Lush visualizations of ON THE ROAD's language

Stephanie sez, "NotCot has a post up about Stephanie Posavec's (not me) incredibly detailed graphic artwork in which she exhaustively analyzes the language and thematic structure of Jack Kerouac's On The Road, rendering the data into amazingly beautiful Tufteian info-graphics that are as elegant as they are data-rich. In 'Literary Organism' the entire beat classic is represented as an array of flowers, with petals and blossoms accurately reflecting the word and paragraph count of each chapter. Colors are assigned based on the subject of each section, like cyan for 'Dean Moriarty,' & tan for 'Parties, drinking, & drugs' It's breathtaking."
