From medieval manuscripts to websites, Daniel Rosenberg and Anthony Grafton explode the concept of the timeline as a static way of representing history. In this lavishly illustrated overview, the standouts include a timeline using the different parts of the human body to show the genealogies of Jesus Christ and the rulers of Saxony, and even ladders created by missionaries in 18th-century Oregon illustrate Bible stories in a vertical format to convert Native Americans. Also included is the April 1912 Marconi North Atlantic Communication chart, which tracked ships—including the Titanic—and a chronological board game patented by Mark Twain.
