Read the top line please: Onassis, Holly, X, John, Golighty...

While hopeless for eye tests, we're big fans of this chart of bespectacled brilliance. It illustrates 73 of the most famous eyepieces from history, film, music and culture - from Kanye West's sci-fi shutters to Harry Potter's black rimmed specks. From the stylish to the downright odd, history's greatest glasses now have their own compendium.

The work of Brooklyn-based Pop Chart Lab, you can purchase a 18" x 24" print from their website.
