Update: The Momentus ProjectJuxtapoz // Monday, 08 Aug 2011
What a well-executed series. The Momentus Project is a collaborative project that is a visualization of the most defining moments in United States history, asking accomplished illustrators to depict each event in their own style. Declaration of Independence, 9-11, Hiroshima, Stock Market Crash, Pearl Harbor, all here.
As the project states, "Contributors hail from around the globe as the most defining moments in United States history have often had a radical effect on the world abroad." Momentus is created and curated by Evan Stremke, designer at Planet Propaganda in Madison, Wisconsin.
