Design for human factors, also known as ergonomics, requires knowledge of bodily dimensions. Tilley created these famous drawings of typical Americans, affectionately known as “Joe” and “Josephine,” based on data used by the United States military (for men) and the fashion industry (for women), from which Tilley was able to determine a range of percentiles from 1 to 100. Joe and Josephine represent the mean (50th percentile)

Dimensions: 27"W x 76"H
