Diagramming Destroyer's Rubies

Diagramming Destroyer's Rubies Graphic designer and Merge fan Jez Burrows created these handsome screenprinted posters dissecting Destroyer's Rubies as an exercise in exploring the word banausic. "I transcribed the entire album and produced an exhaustive collection of diagrams and analysis, including: every word contained in the album in order of how many times it appears; references; grammatical structure; and the overall distribution of lyrics and 'la's." This is not the first time we've seen Destroyer's lyrics have this effect on someone...they almost seem to demand deconstruction.Graphic designer and Merge fan Jez Burrows created these handsome screenprinted posters dissecting Destroyer's Rubies as an exercise in exploring the word banausic.

This is not the first time we've seen Destroyer's lyrics have this effect on someone...they almost seem to demand deconstruction. It's certainly the prettiest effort, though. More pics of the sold-out posters on Jez's site.
