Every Word of Joyce’s Ulysses Printed on a Single Poster

Once upon a time Blotto Design, a design firm based in Berlin, wondered: what would happen if you printed an entire book on a single poster? Could you still read it? How would it look when framed and hung on a wall?

And so they developed a prototype, liked what they saw, and have since turned 20 large books into posters — books like Homer’s Iliad, Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Melville’s Moby Dick, and Joyce’s Ulyssesall 265,222 words of it. Posters cost 20 euros a piece. Browse through the shop here. And get more backstory from Wired here.

    http://postertext.com/ulysses-posternFor those interested, here’s another books-into-posters company whose posters, while not always containing the text of the entire book, are much more visually appealing than Blotto Design’s.

    Cool – the perfect gift for all those hipster wannabes who never actually READ any of those books, but would love to display their intellectual cred by having them adorn their apartment walls.nTres chic.
