Author’s note: “I picked these pages because I think they represent good coverage of the book in terms of both the topics covered but also the variety of visuals I use to bring bankruptcy to life. I wanted readers to see that there are a lot of interesting ways to visualize bankruptcy to make the topic less foreign and more relatable. Further, I wanted to showcase that even within the world of visual representation, there are many different ways to communicate the information which is the artistic aspect of this book.”
