In Kurt Vonnegut's novel Cat's Cradle, the fictional religion Bokononism speaks of connections between characters, both authentic and inauthentic. These charts try to map out links between all characters in a particular novel.

The first novel, Player Piano, was more or less legible, but the second attempt, Breakfast of Champions, turned out... more chaotic. To create them, the novel was mapped out on a large sheet of butcher paper, then recreated digitally.
