Out with the Old and in with the New: Great New Posters from Postertext!

It looks like New Years is coming a little early at Postertext because it’s out with the old and in with the new this month! With the launch of the new and super cool Postertext website, we’ve also decided to revamp some of our classic posters. After reading all of your suggestions, we decided it was time to give a new face to some of your favorite novels. So, with great flourish (cue drumroll), I give you a presentation of old vs. new. Hopefully, you enjoy these new art prints and find a few to put on your to-buy list! :) A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens Old:                                                                                                             vs.                                                New:          
              We decided that we wanted to narrow down the point of visual attention to one of the most important characters in Dickens’ book. This way, it really focuses on one of the saddest scenes in the novel and Carton’s brave approach to death! The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde Old:                                                                                                             vs.                                              New:                      I think we’ve managed to create an amazing remake! What a spooky illustration of the youthful Dorian and his shameful secret! The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes  by Arthur Conan Doyle Old:                                                                                                    vs.                                          New:                                                                 No, your eyes are not deceiving you, we’ve made Sherlock Holmes bigger (and better) than before! This way you’ll have a nice, larger-than-life view of the intrepid detective! Frankenstein by Mary Shelley Old:                                                                                                                     vs.                                                               New:                                                                             Through this new artwork, we’ve definitely given new life to Shelley’s classic. It still portrays the recognizable monster we all know, but with a bit more soul! The Time Machine by H.G. Wells Old:                                                                                                              vs.                                              New:                                                       Although I do like the old art print quite a bit, I prefer the new one because it’s much more representative of the novel – and we made sure that you get to see the mysterious Time Traveler in action! Ulysses by James Joyce Old:                                                                                                            vs.                                                             New:                                                  With our beautiful new rendition of Joyce’s book, we’ve given you a portrait of an intimate and poignant moment between two clandestine philosophers! Dracula by Bram Stoker Old:                                                                                                              vs.                                                        New:                                                                         We thought that the old Dracula illustration might seem a bit scary and not something you would want to see at midnight while on a stroll to the refrigerator. So we’ve created a new one which is less startling but still captures the eerie feel of Stoker’s famous book! The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas Old:                                                                                                                 vs.                                                             New:                                                          I think the new art print is beautiful! We made sure to make it much more accurate and show the incredible transformation of the vengeful Count! Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky Old:                                                                                                                      vs.                                           New:                                                          This is a new and clever depiction of the crime being weighed as equal to the punishment! We believe that this new art print brings Dostoyevsky’s novel into a full circle. As you can see, we’ve been very busy at Postertext working hard to create some great pieces of art. As always, we would love to hear your opinion, so feel free to comment about which ones you like and why! :)
