This poster is part of my ‘Writing Without Words’ project, a project where I attempted to visualise writing styles in literature. I chose to focus most of my visualisations on the novel On the Road, by Jack Kerouac. Here, the structure of Part One of On the Road is mapped out: Part One splits into chapters, chapters into paragraphs, paragraphs into sentences, and sentences into words. This creates a detailed, tree-like structure showing the relationship of all the various components of the novel to each other. Colours chosen from 1940s car paint swatches were used to mark various key themes (Parties, Sal Paradise, Dean Moriarty, Women, and so on) found within the novel.
