i wanted to share some images from about time: a visual memoir around the clock, a beautiful book by french-armenian graphic designer vahram muratyan.
you might recognize the style from the famous paris vs. new york images he did a couple of years ago.
the book is graphic and beautiful but also really thoughtful and insightful and clever.
muratyan presents minimalist visualizations of routines and cycles and patterns that make up the flow of time in our lives. given how obsessed we all are with time – how little we have, how we spend it, how we take it from others, how we track it – it’s interesting to look at these with a little bit of a sense of humor.
i also kind of love that the style is both modern and a little retro. it feels like even the style is a comment on time!
