The Great Gatsby

You’ve heard the old adage “a picture is worth a thousand words” but have you ever seen anything that took it so seriously? Alex and Matt of NovelPoster recently reached out to me to tell about their fantastic art project where they’ve taken full novels and turned them into works of art. “The novel poster prints are entirely composed of only the book’s complete text, from beginning to end, and are fully legible,” they say.
