“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”
So said Oscar Wilde and it’s probably a statement that the founder of our latest Startup of the Week would agree with. Danny Fein has created a startup which has enabled an entirely new way of appreciating literature - by displaying it and by wearing it. The name of that startup? Litographs.
Litographs are prints that are created using the text from classic works of literature. The prints are used on posters and t-shirts. The really interesting thing though is that these prints aren’t just random or popular quotes from the books - they are actually the entire book! All the classics are here - from The Great Gatsby to Wuthering Heights and there are new poster designs released twice a week with new titles and designs.
The other really impressive thing about this startup is its commitment to promoting literacy worldwide. They have partnered with the International Book Bank and for every poster that they sell, they send one new high quality book to a community in need. For that reason alone, they ought to be commended!
The ingenuity and creativity in these products though are what really sets them apart.
If you’re a book lover you’ll love Litographs. We do. Lots.
