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.
