Spineless Classics - The perfect Christmas gift for the book lover in your life (or something to add to your own wish list?!)

Spineless Classics Poster - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

I have fallen in love with the Spineless Classics range of stunning posters so I had to share some of them with you here. Can you think of anything better than the text of a whole book contained on one poster? Especially when the text forms an image that is relevant to the book? Just have a look at the Alice's Adventures in Wonderland poster above - isn't it stunning? Although I haven't seen one of the posters in the flesh the website says that the text is large enough that you can actually read the story directly from the poster! I don't know about the rest of you but I think this is a wonderful idea that would make a great Christmas gift for any book lover. I'll definitely be adding the Alice poster to my Christmas wish list!

Spineless Classics Poster - Peter Pan

Another one of my favourites is this Peter Pan one, I think this and the Alice one would be perfect for a child's bedroom or nursery but I'd happily display either of them anywhere in my house! 

Spineless Classics Poster - A Christmas Carol

How about the A Christmas Carol poster to put up each year along with the Christmas decorations? There are actually two different designs for this poster, the other one is a picture of an old fashioned candle & can be found on the Spineless Classics website.

Spineless Classics Poster - The Just-So Stories

One of my favourite books as a child was a collection of Rudyard Kipling's Just-So Stories so of course this poster caught my attention and I love the way the poster contains images of all of the different animals mentioned in the stories.

Spineless Classics Poster - Finn Family Moomintroll

If you prefer something with a bit of colour then the Finn Family Moomintroll poster includes original colour illustrations drawn by the author Tové Jansson for the first edition of the book. I know I'm not the only Moomins fan out there and I adore these drawings!

Spineless Classics Poster - You Are a Shark

Who else remembers those choose your own adventure books that were so popular when I was a child? I remember reading those books over and over again and loving the fact that every time you picked them up you could go on a different adventure. Now that adventure is available in poster form with You Are a Shark complete with a colourful illustrated boarder.

I have concentrated on the children's classics in this post but it was still impossible to include pictures of all the different posters. If you haven't seen your favourite yet you'll probably be able to find it on the website where they have plenty more to choose from including Black Beauty, Oliver Twist, The Jungle Book, The Secret Garden, The Wind in the Willows and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and many more.

That's without mentioning the Spineless Classics range of adult books including Romeo and Juliet, Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, The Great Gatsby, Dracula, Frankenstein and even War and Peace! I haven't even mentioned half of the available posters so make sure you check out the Spineless Classics website, their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter for more information.

Just to clarify, these images have been used with the permission of Spineless Classics but I was not paid to write this blog post and I have not received any free products from them. I just wanted to share a fab book related item with my fellow book lovers because I think the posters are so fantastic! I'd love to know what you think of them - have you ever seen the posters in a store or do you own one? If you have can you tell me how easy it is to read the text? Which poster is your favourite? Is there a book you'd love to see turned into a poster? Finally are any of you adding one of them to your Christmas wish list like I am?


  1. I've seen these posters before...I wonder what's the size!

  2. These look amazing! That's at least one gift sorted for Christmas...thanks!

  3. Ooh. I hadn't seen these before, I really like that some of them include more illustrations.

    Postertext also do some fab posters! I'm hoping to get one for Christmas this year :)

  4. @ Josette - They have the size information on the website, I think the measurements change depending on which poster you want so it's best to check on there to make sure you have the right info.

    @ Carrie - they're fab aren't they! I'm definitely planning on buying one when I have enough spare cash :o)

    @ Willoughby Book Club - they are perfect Christmas presents for book lovers aren't they! They cover such a variety of different books that there is bound to be something for everyone too!

    @ Clover - they're fantastic aren't they! I still can't decide which one I like most LOL. I'd not heard of the postertext ones so I'm going to have to google them, thanks for the recommendation though & I hope you get your fave as a Christmas pressie :o)
