Why Are Spineless Classics Becoming So Popular In The Modern World

By: Samantha Maskrey

Classic novels have captivated the hearts and minds of readers all over the world for decades; despite being set in such different time periods, they tell stories which everyone can relate to, about love, loss, adventure and tragedy. But, as the internet became more accessible in the late nineties, these books began to fall from popularity, as other sources of entertainment became available. Online games, videos and blogs began to take the place of these printed stories.
However, slowly but surely, there has been a revival of classic literature, and this can be explained in part by the development of the Spineless Classics concept. This seemingly simple, but brilliant idea has allowed people to look (both literally and figuratively) at classic novels in a different light. Using some of the world’s best known tales, this company creates posters with one entire novel printed onto a single page. The text is small, but legible, and the page itself is shaped into an image which relates to the novel. They use a wide range of books, including magical tales such as Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan, as well as Dracula, Jane Eyre and dozens of other famous pieces of literature.
It’s no easy task to combine literature and visual art, but the makers of Spineless Classics have done so, in an incredibly innovative way. These posters are the perfect choice of décor for all book lovers, as they are a dramatic and aesthetically pleasing focal point for any room – they’re also a great conversation starter when guests come to visit! Creative, bold and skilfully designed, they’re ideal if you want to add a personal touch to your home.
Not only do these posters serve as beautiful, meaningful accessories, which make a statement about the owner’s tastes and reading preferences, but they also present classic novels – which for the uninitiated, can be quite intimidating – in such a way that that they seem more accessible. Because the text is large enough to read, it encourages those who may not see themselves as fanatical readers, to dip their toes into the world of reading. Whilst a hefty book of several hundred pages might be off-putting to a young person, the same words, printed on a beautiful poster, may be unusual and inviting enough to pique their interest and draw them in. This could easily lead to a lifelong love of the written word!
