Extra content to go with the book

The tree drawings below show the family trees of the men in the group photograph. In the exhibition they are printed 1 metre high and the whole vista including the example tree is 34 metres wide. On your screen you are not able to get the full impact that that full size allows, but you can at least look in more detail than is possible on the poster with the book. The roots are the men's ancestors (going down to the year 1812), and the branches are descendants of their parents (going up to the present year 2015). Branches with the yellowy-green glow show that the man in the group photograph has descendants who are still living, the other darker green branches being from their brothers and sisters. The earth horizon line goes through each tree at the date at which that man in the group photograph was born, and in between the trees it returns to 1889 which was the average year of birth for all these men. The two darkest bands across the sky represent the periods of the 2 World Wars. And above everything, the sun still shines.Use the links below to download the full size files to be able to see the names and details that run along the roots and branches and which really bring the uniqueness of each of these trees to life.
