Literary Classics as Works of Art (5 total)

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.

Not only did the duo want to highlight classic novels, however, they also wanted to recognize today's most well renowned twitter users. The tweets of Stephen Colbert, Lady Gaga, Shaquille O'Neal, Kanye West and Katy Perry are also part of the series.

NovelPoster launched on Kickstarter.com with a collection of all ten prints, five classic novels and five celebrity tweets. For funding, they've already exceeded their goal of $5,000 but are still looking for support. Read about this project at KickStarter.
