Postertext was born out of the Reddit community in 2010 and was an early adopter in accepting Bitcoin as a payment method in 2014.
The concept of using words to create illustrations quickly became an online sensation and was mentioned in The New York Times, Wired, GQ, Harvard, and many others.
In 2016, the illustrations were collated and bound to create "Boundless Books: 50 Literary Classics Transformed into Works of Art"—a hardcover still available in major bookstores across the world. With long-form literature dwindling and mom-and-pop bookstores shuttering their windows, the artist stopped producing new works and ultimately shut down the operation in 2017.
In 2021, during the pandemic, Postertext was resurrected to contribute to the new era of digital art: non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Today, all artworks are purchasable only as NFTs.
The artist traveled the world for three years while designing the artworks you see here. As a (former) digital nomad, he's marathoned in North Korea, scuba dived with whale sharks in the Philippines, explored untouched caves in Vietnam, and even holds a Guinness World Record for something completely unworthy to mention here.
He now runs a virtual reality studio in Vancouver (Canada) called, Metanaut and enjoys spending time with his cat, Neptune.
