Ordinaries, Divisions, and Arrangements Revisited

Six years ago I posted a fun little chart that highlights the relationship between the terms we use for ordinaries and the related divisions, arrangements, and orientations.

Recently I made a few minor updates to the chart, the most notable of which was to add a column for the corresponding multiple divisions, such as barry and bendy.

Available as a high-resolution PNG or as a printable PDF.

(I’d love to also squeeze the diminutive forms such as bars and bendlets onto this same sheet, but I’m running out of space!)
