Booklicious: Postertext: A Picture Made of a Thousand Words

September 02, 2010


My husband is not going to be happy that I came across this at Wired. I've been on a decorating kick since, well, since we moved into our apartment last December. In my defense, this place is literally twice as big as our previous apartment - and that means there are a lot of bare walls to fill!

So anyway, these posters just scream modern library art. Postertext is pretty much the perfect marriage of words and pictures, and not just because the posters depict an image from literature. Incredibly, that grey background is that literature. The poster above contains the entire text of Peter Pan; Ulysses below is made from the first quarter of the book. Although only a small number of posters are currently available, Postertext has plans to add more every week. If you have a particular favorite you'd like to see up there, you can shoot them an email and have it added to the queue. 

So which is my favorite? Find out after the jump.
