Infographic | A Brief History Of Prince's Sign ☮ The Times Album

Designer Craig Robinson at Flip Flop Flyin' re-shared this 2014 infographic that tells the remarkable story of the Sign ☮ The Times album. Most of his data was sourced from Prince's vast wikipedia entries, and it is a lot.

Definitely a cool visual representation of what goes on in the mind of an artist, who is at times at odds with the commercial pressures foisted on them by the record company.  It was stuff like this in the 80s that eventually led to the emergence of the unpronounceable symbol in the nineties.
