“Introducing a novel as you’ve never seen one before, now as a poster as you’ve never read one before.” So opens the headline on All the World’s a Page’s website, and really, there isn’t any way to describe what they do in fewer words. One day they wondered if it would be possible to print an entire novel onto one page, and if they did it, would it still be possible to read it?
The answer to both of those questions turned out to be yes, much to the joy of their customers. Now you can choose from a whole selection of titles which push the traditions of the published novel to the very brink; from Laurence Sterne’s The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman to James Joyce’s mammoth work Ulysses and Homer’s Iliad. Their huge posters are conveniently sold alongside magnifying glasses in their online shop, and the artistic merit of the gigantic compressed texts has recently seen them hold their own exhibition in Hudson’s Cakes in Kreuzberg. Hang one next to your desk for perpetual procrastination or, even better, on the back of your bathroom door. You’ll never have to worry about finding reading material again.
