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.
