Hidden in plain sight

Covering your walls with the words of the classics, sounds nice doesn’t it? Maybe I’m the only one who geeks out over the idea of having wall decorations that are not only inspired by my favorite books—they are my favorite books. Postertext.com sells beautiful wall posters that are made out of the words of novels that we all know and love.

Here is the poster for Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment. An interesting visual isn’t it? I love that such an iconic part of the story is shown in the white space but get the rest of the story if you look closer.

One of my favorites is the poster of Jane Eyre. There is so much tenderness in the poster that it is easy to suppose the whole story revolves around an intensely affectionate love; I love that the text reveals the truth— Jane Eyre is a troubled girl with nowhere else to go and Mr. Rochester is a man married to a lunatic.
The beauty in these posters lies in what is hidden just beneath the surface. What do you think?
Ta for now,

  1. This is so cool! The posters look so classy. I could see myself having a few of those posters along with splashy posters of movie adaptations. ^_^
