A Visual History of the Supreme Court - New Infographic Poster!

Today, I want to share the launch of  A new infographic site focused on designing visual timelines by Nathaniel Pearlman and Frank Hamilton.  The site launched today highlighting their first project; a poster called "A Visual History of the Supreme Court of the United States".
This large-scale (48″x32″) print displays the full sweep of American federal judicial history from 1789 to 2009. It combines biographical information on every Supreme Court justice with a visualization of the influence of U.S. presidents and their political parties on the Court over time, and includes vote counts and summaries of landmark cases.
Months of work went into researching the history of the Supreme Court, and that effort really shows through in the level of detail in this poster.

It's a good thing they offer this as a large format poster, because the detail draws you closer to discover the events and landmark decisions that are the colorful history of the SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States).

I love that even on their About page, they created small, infographic timelines as a visual of their individual experiences and career histories.  Here's Nathan's:
