This Anna Karenina poster is created using the first 15 chapters of the book.
With Anna Karenina, Tolstoy effectively created one of the most tragic heroines of all time. Mingling amongst the high society of 19th century Russia, Anna finds herself facing a painful choice; she must choose between true love with her paramour Vronsky and therefore sacrifice her marriage and her son, or she must remain united in a loveless marriage for the sake of the stifling culture surrounding her.
With Tolstoy’s legendary words, this art print recreates a scene which will resonate with every reader who has cried over Anna Karenina’s tragic fate. A train pushes its way through the frigid Russian winter, and as the smoke drifts into the ebony night, it takes the form of the sad and resigned face of Anna. In this illustration, she gazes far into the distance, knowing now that this train will forever symbolize the coming of her great love as well as her inevitable demise.
Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (20x24'' - 50.8x61cm)
ThisStrange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde posteris created using the entire text of the book.
In The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Stevenson leads us on a journey amongst the murky and foggy streets of London where good and evil collide in a series of alarming events. Dr. Jekyll, a prominent and highly moral doctor, begins to indulge too frequently his bizarre and intricately evil personality – who he refers to as Mr. Hyde. In a chaotic turn of events, Dr. Jekyll finds his two natures – the good and the evil – waging a vicious war within him, the result being an astonishing climax.
With Stevenson’s ominously vibrant verbosity, this art print depicts intensely the starkly different personalities of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In this illustration, Dr. Jekyll is stepping back, frightened and awed by the increasing power of an evil force he once believed he could control. Over his shoulder, Mr. Hyde looks on with a maniacal grin, shrewdly awaiting the moment in which Dr. Jekyll finally succumbs to his power and is completely and maliciously overtaken by his dark potency.
Gulliver's Travels (24x30'' - 61x76.2cm)
This Gulliver's Travels poster is created using the first 6 chapters of the book.
Jonathan Swift’s famous novel Gulliver’s Travels recounts the story of a man on an adventure that takes him to distant and unimaginable places. In his travels, Gulliver encounters exotic cultures, languages, and people; each of these concurrences offers some insight into the plight and beauty of humanity in our world.
Our Gulliver’s Travels poster uses Swift’s original words to cleverly capture Gulliver’s encounter with one of these cultures and illustrate the major theme of Swift’s work: the fallacy of human self- importance. Gulliver kneels in deference to greet the King of the Lilliputians who, despite his obvious miniscule size in comparison to Gulliver, believes himself to hold the power to control Gulliver’s actions. The King is therefore puffed up in pride as he converses with the enormous adventurer. Yet Gulliver portrays the positive aspect of humanity in his willingness to be humble and to try to adapt to a new culture and way of life.
Tess of the d'Urbervilles (24x36'' - 61x91.4cm)
ThisTess of the d'Urbervilles posteris created using the first 6 chapters of the book.
Hardy’s novel tells the tale of Tess: a young and innocent girl who, through a series of unfortunate events, is sent to work for Alec, a wealthy and self-centered libertine. Alec recklessly takes by force Tess’ most valued possession – her virtue, lasciviously ruins her reputation, and selfishly destroys her pure soul. In order to set things right, and to finally reunite with her true love Angel, Tess commits a terrible and deplorable act in one last desperate attempt to obtain her spiritual freedom.
With Hardy’s descriptive and impressive rhetoric, this art print captures Tess in her wildest and most beautiful instant: her final stance at Stonehenge. Tess pays for her few moments of precious liberty in a dreadful and taxing way, and this artwork presents her as a proud and free woman, looking towards her doomed future with an unwavering gaze. In this gorgeous illustration, her hair flows back in the wind, and her thoughts are elevated to lofty pinnacles over gloomy and awe-inspiring ruins.
Treasure Island (24x36'' - 61x91.4cm)
ThisTreasure Island poster is created using the first 29 chapters of the book. Treasure Island is a story told primarily from the perspective of a young boy named Jim who witnesses the ferocity, mutiny, and gluttony that is spawned from a terrible lust for wealth. In a dreadful race to be the first to claim a buried treasure, lives are lost and destinies forever altered. It is a cursed journey where many pursue it, but few survive to tell the tale of the treacherous passage and the sacrifices made to find the golden paragon.
With Stevenson’s gripping original rhetoric, this art print portrays the darkness that accompanies the quest for fortune. In the distance, an island full of lush greenery and beautiful flora seems to float in a magical world of its own and calls out to the eager traveler – yearning to tell its tale of wealth and fame. Yet amongst the soft undulating waves of the ocean, a skull and a set of crossbones form, almost as a warning of the bloody and gruesome fate that await those who seek this island’s treasure.
