Charles & Ray Eames’ Powers of Ten Flipbook
By Maria Popova
Yesterday, we featuerd Charles and Ray Eames’ iconic Powers of Ten as one of our five visualizations of the scale of the universe. Today, we were delighted to discover that Pentagram designer Joe Marianek filmed and narrated the original Eames Powers of Ten flipbook.
The book takes you on a journey through 38 powers of ten, at a pace of two pages per power, moving from big to small. This means that every two pages, you see a view ten times smaller than two pages earlier.
Enjoy — and grab a copy of the original flipbook for your own creative perusal.
