20 Generations Family Tree

This personal project of mine compiled both sides of my family, twenty generations, and nearly six-hundred years of ancestors and cousins. On paper, it measures 36" by 160" and was composed in Adobe Illustrator. The horizontal format makes for the most efficient use of space. Vertically, a timeline establishes historic context.
