I just came back from BEA and I'm exhausted. My back is literally killing me from carrying all those books and the insane NYC weather made me sweat. A probably lengthy BEA recap post will probably be written in soon (hopefully!), along with everything that I got. 

At BEA, I found a cool literary poster/tote bag/t-shirt maker called Litographs, which makes graphics of books that are rendered in the text of the book, instead of pixels. The designs are quite cute and unique (to think, the full text of a book in a simple design!). 

I didn't see the tote bags on the Litograph site yet, but I'm pretty sure they're going to be released soon since there were some for sale at BEA. 

For each poster that's sold, there a book is donated through the International Book Bank to a community in need. 

Here are some of my favorites:

The graininess of the photo is just because the picture is made up of text, not pixels. This one is the poster for Ulysses by James Joyce. I have a weakness for simple things and graphics with moustaches. I don't know why. 

This poster is for F. Scott Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise. I like the simplicity of it and the color. As you can probably tell, I'm a sucker for pastel colored things as well. 

Anyway, this is a short post but definitely check out Litographs! I think it's quite neat!

  4. Yes! I'm still deciding which one I'll be getting since they're all pretty neat.

  5. SO PRETTY!! I've love to have these, they're so imaginative and hmm... Save lots of space from buying all the thick volumes when you can get it in one poster!! Haha, will definitely keep a lookout for lithographs, thank you for sharing and hope you had an amazing time at BEA :)

  6. Yes! I didn't think of that but that's so true! BEA was amazing.

  7. Oh wow, I LOVE these. I had no clue they were text for the stories until you pointed it out! I'll have to check their site for others. (Oh, and so glad I found your blog! Love it!)

  8. Ahhh, thank you so much! I love these posters and I'm still deliberating about which poster I'm getting, LOL.
