As a type of information graphic, the “Small Multiple” is a series of small charts, diagrams, or maps that together as a group, show how something changes over time or space or in different contexts. Extending this idea farther than anyone probably ever intended, here are two of my earliest experiments in merging images to create panoramas. These involved multiplying my kids (scary thought!) when they were smaller, revealing how they changed over very short intervals of time and space. These were assembled “manually” in Photoshop 4.0, without the aid of any automated image-stitching: just a lot of careful stretching, shearing, and masking of the images.
