Curse You Reed-Kellogg


If you were educated during a certain era in the United States, you are all too familiar with the classic Reed-Kellogg diagrammatical system. The folks at Pop Chart Lab in New York , whose goal is “to render all of human experience in chart form”, have turned 25 famous opening lines from iconic works of fiction into a clever, color-coded piece of wall art. If you’re so inclined, you can purchase your own version right here.

For those of you lucky enough to have avoided the Reed-Kellogg System in school, it dates from 1877, when it was created by two sadists named Alonzo Reed and Brainerd Kellogg.
