As a final swansong for its two year old daily illustrated fact blog – Learn Something Every Day – creative agency Young has commissioned an illustrator a day this month to illustrate a bizarre, little known fact such as the one above (by Serge Seidlitz). Contributors include Al Heighton, Marion Deuchars, Andy Rementer, Matthew Hodson, Jon Boam, and Siggie Eggertsson

Learn Something Every Day has run since August 2009, when Young’s founders Pete Jarvis and Geth Vaughan, began posting up a doodle each day illustrating a lesser known fact about something or other. Within two weeks of of it’s inception the site was recording 10,000 unique hits a day and May this year saw the release of a Lean Something Every Day book (published by Penguin) compiling dozens of the illustrated facts. Here are some of our favourite posts from this, the last month of the blog’s existence:
