The Histories of Poor Boys and Famous People

‘The Histories of Poor Boys and Famous People’ is a set of fifty short biographies issued by W. Duke Sons & Co. in 1888. Each publication recounts the life story of a notable individual who overcame adversity to achieve success. In this rejuvenation of the series, the front cover of each booklet is paired with another, and a halftone screen generated from Ethereum transaction data is used to create a transition between them.

This new collection of fifty unique animations shines a light on prominent historical figures and celebrates the graphic artists who crafted the original artworks.
