These are the definition of functional art. Entire books, condensed, prettified and presented on posters. At a time when sitting down and reading an actual book is becoming a rarity, here’s another new-era twist on the classics. Spineless Classics has crafted a savvy way to present much-loved books on beautiful posters, where the words form illustrations.
There’s Alice In Wonderland – with the curious Alice peering around the corner of the script.
My favourite is The Wizard Of Oz, with the words of the story forming the iconic Emerald City and yellow brick road.
The words are legible, as the close up of Peter Pan above demonstrates, but you do need sharp eyesight, or a little magnification to make the experience easier. These posters would make such a unique addition to any little bookworm’s room. I know as a child I would have sat for hours reading my favourite snippets. The posters are available directly from Spineless Classics, unframed, starting at $79.95 per poster.
