Spineless Classics

During my trip to the UK last year, I discovered a fantastic way to publish a book: as a poster.

Harry-Potter-and-the-Philosopher-s-Stone-_679090_h500Spineless Classics creates posters from the full text of a novel. Yes, that is the full text, in 4 pt font. You have to get close to read it, but it is legible. It’s not even difficult to navigate the white space. I’m not saying you should stand in your living room to read the whole thing in one…standing, but you totally could!

I already have this Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone one, but I’m thinking of getting another — or two! I love how they’ve combined text and white space to create a beautiful version of our favorite books.

Right now they have over 70 books available, from Austen and Dickens to Roald Dahl and L. Frank Baum. They can get expensive, especially with your longer books like War and Peace, but you can still enjoy the designs for free by browsing their site!
