“All the World’s a Page” Poster

Berlin’s Blotto Design attempts something I never though possible – stuffing a full book’s worth of text into poster form. They achieved great results with some classics like, The Illiad,  MacBeth, and others – bouncing between English and German text.  “The longest text is Marx’s Das Kapital, which has over 800,000 words, and is set in 2.2pt type. The result is a wall of text, which intrigues the viewer by slowly revealing its content the closer one gets to the poster: from a distance it resembles a uniform grey-scale field; from up close the hidden structure of the text is revealed through the varying density of paragraph symbols.” (fpo)

More looks after the click.
