Sentence Drawings

Stefanie Posavec's First Chapters is a diagram system that could easily represent differences in writing style between authors. Posavec used the number of words per sentence to generate drawings of the first chapters of various modern classics: the more tightly wound the drawing means a shorter, choppier flow of sentences was used, while a larger drawing represents a writing style that utilises long, flowing sentences.
