Famous Writers' Sleep Habits and Literary Productivity

by Accurat

Collect your choice of gallery quality Giclée, or fine art prints custom trimmed by hand in a variety of sizes with a white border for framing.


In this visualization the wakeup times of famous writers for whom the data was available, based on various interviews and biographies, are correlated with their literary productivity as measured by number of works published and major awards received. Since the length of a writing career influences the volume of literary output and the historical time frame determines the awards he or she could have received, the lifespan of each writer is also indicated for context. 

Concept and direction by Maria Popova 
Design and research by Accurat
Portraits by Wendy MacNaughton 

Created for www.brainpickings.org

A third of the proceeds are being donated to Room to Read (www.roomtoread.org)
For better readability we suggest a print size of 14" x 23" or more.

I ordered the writers' sleep chart and letters are so small I can't read even with glasses. This poster is $30--I would like to return it and have my debit card refunded, please. Thanks

Great bit of work

I should have listened to Beth's review of this. She at least didn't make the even bigger mistake of ordering this framed. It's completely illegible -- and that is totally not an exaggeration. It's INSANE that this is being offered. I just wrote to the company requesting a full refund of my $58 (bad on me for choosing the framed version). Do not -- seriously, DO NOT -- order this product. And if the company is reading this -- seriously -- remove this from your store, or you'll just keep getting comments like this. Thanks.

Has anyone seen this in the larger sizes (recommended 14" and above for comfortable reading)? Truly LOVE the idea of this print. Hope I can come to a conclusion as to whether or not I will be happy with the larger size.
