This graph traces the increase in Crayola options from 1903 to 2010. What we see here (courtesy of Stephen Von Worley, usually called “Steve” or “Von”) is a chart created by his friend “Velo” that starts with the eight original Crayolas of 1903 until, after a series of sudden bursts — to 16 in 1935, then up and up in 1949, 1958, 1972 — we get to the crayon-cringing immensity of today’s 120 different choices.
