A survey of star-spangled banners flown throughout American history,
this patriotic print tracks the evolution of the stars and stripes from
1767 to the present—documenting 48 versions of the famed American
emblem in all. Beginning with the star-less “Rebellious Stripes” in 1767
and culminating in the familiar 50-star standard created in 1960, this
chart stops to salute all manner of American ensigns, including the many
iterations of the 13-point banderol, as well as aesthetic outliers like
the Gadsden, the red-and-green George Rogers Clark and the blue-striped
Serapis. For added historical context, each flag is also marked with
the number of colonies/states in existence at the time of its inception.
An invaluable reference for vexillologists and history buffs of all
stripes, this print is sure to wave right in behind baseball and apple
pie as an exemplar of Americana.
Each print is signed and numbered by the artists from a first
printing of 500, and comes packaged in a Pop Chart Lab Test Tube. See
the menu to the right for finishing options, and note that framed prints
require an additional 3-4 business days of processing time.
Using 100 lb. archival stock certified by The Forest Stewardship
Council, this poster is pressed on an offset lithographic press with
vegetable-based inks in Long Island City, Queens.
The Story of Pop Chart Lab
In 2010, a book editor
and a graphic designer joined forces with one modest goal: to render
all of human experience in chart form. They went on to amass no small
renown (that is, a ton of renown) for their infographical treatments of
the varieties of beer, the full array of culinary tools, a taxonomy of
hip-hop, and dozens more mappings of cultural touchstones. Now, with a
small team of researchers, designers, and soldiers, Pop Chart Lab
continues to assemble, sift, cull, and arrange massive amounts of
cultural data into meaningful works of art and information.
I was happy to get to receive a poster/print by Pop Chart Labs. I chose the American Flags for the playroom/study of our little girls. The wall is filled with their awards, certificates and their How to Become President of the United States. So I thought this American Flags poster would be perfect for this inspiration wall. It looks great on the wall.
The quality of the print is very good. I love that it is printed on a nice thick paper so it will last for years to come. I like that it arrive safe and sound in a nice clear packing tube. I recommend checking out their products. I for one, would like to get the basketball sneakers of the 90's.
This is the packing tube the print came in.
