For those of you that aren’t familiar with Kickstarter, it’s a website used by people to promote funding for any kind of starter project. Litographs is such a project and a fabulous one that is well deserved!
What is Litographs? In short – it’s a start up company that creates posters and T-shirts composed of a literary design that are made entirely out of the words of the book itself! Take for instance this new design of ‘The Great Gatsby‘:
The text is fully legible and the poster prints come in two sizes. Can’t you just picture one in your dinning room?
The T-shirts are just as legible although due to the seams some bits are blurred as it is rightly sew (haha). Still, I can’t imagine a more beautiful way to pay homage to an amazing book! How cool is the shirt of Peter Pan?
Want to know more about this amazing company? Here’s their ‘About’ info:
“Books as Art
Litographs are prints that are created from the text of classic books. For most titles we are able to print the entire book on our 24×36″ paper. We offer designs in both color and black & white, and in two sizes.
In all cases, the text is sharp and fully legible. You can see the actual size of the text by viewing any of our designs and clicking on the boxes in the main image.
Litographs is committed to promoting literacy, both at home and abroad.
We’re proud to partner with the International Book Bank to send one new, high-quality book to a community in need for each poster we sell.
My name is Danny Fein, and I founded Litographs because I love books. I can’t imagine growing up without them, and want to do everything I can to make sure that students and communities around the world have access to literature and learning materials.
Litographs are a labor of love, and a product I’m absolutely proud to offer. They have proved to be more than just decoration on my walls. They are conversation starters and windows into my beliefs, and add character to my home.
Please feel free to get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, suggestions, or thoughts.”
Beautiful designs, an amazing message and helping spread books around the world? Plus they ship internationally! What is not to love about this? Nothing! I praise Danny for his brilliant passion for books and ability to share this love with other book lovers around the globe.
I can’t wait to get my own print but which one to buy is the only problem….
Until next time. Many thanks to PrettyBooks for posting this on Tumblr!
