Congress Poster

This is a 24"x40" poster of Comic #1127. Laid out entirely by hand, it traces the composition of the US congress through the ages based both on party membership and published statistical analysis of individual voting habits. Additionally, it hilights the paths of notable members of Congress and various historical trends and oddities. It's a good gift for anyone who's a little obsessed with politics or who just might like to know which senator's career peaked with an impassioned speech about how great dogs are or which congressman was assassinated by a drunk member of the Ku Klux Klan.
