Swedish graphic designer Mattias Sahlén came up with a series of classic novels printed on posters.
First audiobooks and then portable reading devices. What ever happened to the original greatness of a written text – the art of finely adjusted characters, placed on natural pieces of paper? As a retrogressive reaction to the technology development in the world today, I made these not-suitable-for-reading-on-the-bus booksters, where written words will remain written. They’ll not get digitialized and hidden away in some music-flipping-pod-slash-picture-showing-browsing-machine. Instead, I took it back to where it all began. With characters old school printed on old school pieces of paper. And posteralized the whole shebang. Try taking those 100×70 cm booksters on the bus and have a comfortable read. I dare you.
