This tangible graphic represents US Paper production in 2000. The Paper-fold pie chart was designed by Romanian illustrator Alexandra Muresan aka ixycreativity who amongst other things has also visualised global life expectancy.
Muresan has represented each Paper usage – newsprint, tissue, containerboard, etc – using the Paper type itself. The stats are quite interesting too:
- 28% of Paper production is for printing and writing Paper
- 8% is for newsprint
- 7% is for tissue
- 5% is for packaging
