Two years ago we showed you the work of graphic designer Christian Jackson, who had created a collection of minimalist posters of well-known children’s stories.
Jackson has released another collection of story designs and like the first series, some of the fairytales depicted are instantly recognisable while others are a little more obscure. It’s hard to miss the puckered lips and golden crown for The Frog Prince or the twisted vine for Jack and the Beanstalk however my favourite is Cinderella. The glass slipper may be the first thing that pops to mind when thinking about Cinderella and yet the story hinges around the clock striking midnight, as Jackson reminds us with his simple clock face.
The second series also includes Chicken Little, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty and Gulliver’s Travels.
Prints can be purchased from Jackson’s website, Sinch, and are priced at US$31.
