Tree of Life

If you want a hardcopy of this poster, you can either (1) download the PDF file here for free and take it to a print shop (Kinkos will work) and get it printed as a large poster (it prints 24″ x 48″), or (2) buy it online at (click here to jump to the poster).

The words in the image above may look a bit blurry because this web page is displaying a compressed JPEG image on this web site (to improve download time). If you make a print from the PDF file (or zazzle) all the words and lines will be crisp and clear.

I created the poster with the Xara Xtreme drawing program.
