HOW IKEA WOULD BUILD STONEHENGE


British writer, Justin Pollard, collaborated with Stevyn Colgan and John Lloyd to design a hilarious infographic inspired by IKEA’s how-to-build graphic instructions. The infographic is entitled “Henj”, and depicts the steps one would take in order to build the infamous Stone Henge in Wiltshire, Britain. Keeping true to original IKEA infographics characteristics, the imagery is black and white, the title of the furniture (or in this case, monument) in question has a quirky name, a list of all required pieces is included, and the seemingly straight-forward graphics are riddled with confusing bits of information. The “Henj” inforgraphic was published in the QI “H” Annual.
