Now available from the Eames Office archives, a limited quantity of the original poster Men of Modern Mathematics. Originally produced in 1966, and distributed by IBM to schools. Adapted from the history wall in Eames exhibition, Mathematica: A World of Numbers . . . and Beyond, this poster is an excellent example of the wonderful graphic style of the Eames Office. While the posters do show some marks of time they are in very good condition.
Posters are in original printed format of 48″ x 73.5″ (see photo). A modern feat of printing in 1966, the poster was too large to print as one long 24″ x 147″ sheet, so the 147″ was separated into two halves, and doubled up on one 48″ x 73.5″ sheet (see image). The printers had to run that one sheet through the press over 20 times in order to catch all the details!
To put the full timeline together, you will need to follow the horizontal line scored down the middle of the 73.5″ wide sheet, to make two 24″ x 73.5″ pieces, then place them end to end in order to have the complete horizontal 24″ x 147″ timeline.
