A Spineless Classic Poster!
I have been waiting to tell you about Spineless Classics for a couple of months now!
For those who have never heard of Spineless Classics, visit their website to discover many great novels. Spineless Classics takes a book and puts it--in its entirety--on a poster that can hang in a library, an office, a kid's room, etc. STARDUST by Neil Gaiman and THE PRINCESS BRIDE by William Goldman are the two newest additions. There are also classics like Cinderella and Peter Pan and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, as well as modern favorites such as HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S/PHILOSOPHER'S STONE and THE HOBBIT and PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES.
Spineless Classics sent me a review copy of STARDUST by Neil Gaiman:
Here is a look with more light (But it also has more reflection due to this...sorry!):
I've uploaded a YouTube video with my full review, because this is one book that looks amazing in person:
The optional frame:
YouTube Link I bought a cheap poster frame at the craft store. At half price, it was about $20. Spineless Classics sells a much better frame. Ask them for rates when placing your order! Here's their description of their frames:
"Frames are in real wood, painted plain black and hand finished by reputable framers."
The paper quality:
"Our posters are printed on lush, satin finish paper with state-of-the-art printing technology. The text is pin-sharp and the paper non-reflective so you can hang and light it exactly as you wish."

Fantasy favourites from Spineless Classics
Stardust & The Princess Bride in beautiful book art form
London 06 August 2014: Due to popular demand from fans, Spineless Classics is pleased to announce the launch of two fantasy novels - Stardust and The Princess Bride.
Spineless Classics creates unique designs using the full text of a book on a single page to form stunning pieces of wall art. The collection includes an extremely diverse range with over 100 classic titles. Every word from the book is included as well as all of the original formatting.
Stardust, the magical creation by Neil Gaiman, tells the story of Tristran Thorn’s romantic quest to find a fallen star in the magical land of Faerie
The print’s design has a silhouette of Tristran leading the beautiful star Yvaine on a unicorn. The text of the book encompasses both this magical image and the title, surrounded by shooting stars. In the UK there will be a limited edition with glow-in-the-dark highlights to give this print the ultimate fairytale feel.
Another modern classic, The Princess Bride is the tongue-in-cheek fantasy novel written by William Goldman. With equal parts romance, comedy, adventure and fairytale, the book is filled with memorable and witty quotes including “As You Wish”, “Inconceivable!” and “Hallo, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father; prepare to die!”. These and other classic quotes have been highlighted in red to stand out on the print for true fans to enjoy.
The design for The Princess Bride was put to a vote on the Spineless Classics Facebook page. The clear favourite and therefore the final design sees the main characters including Buttercup, Wesley and Fezzik the giant bought to life on the page. Colour is also added to the print through Buttercup’s red dress and blonde hair.
Carl Pappenheim, Managing Director & Founder of Spineless Classics commented: “We had a lot of fun creating these designs. I'm very happy to be adding both these books to our range and it was particularly fun to get the public vote on The Princess Bride. We are building a loyal fan base and want to make sure they love these designs of their favourite classics. We’ve had a lot of requests for these two books and we’re extremely pleased with the final results.”
Both designs measure 70x100cm and cost £39.99 unframed.Available from Spineless Classics www.spinelessclassics.com
