Now here’s a novel children’s gift – ‘Spineless Classics’ are popular kids stories turned into attractive posters.
The range includes favourites like The Hobbit, Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
The text is somewhat small at 4pt, but such a compromise is to be expected with the condensing of hundreds of pages of classic prose into a 70 x 100cm size. Formatting and chapter headings are preserved so a favourite passage can be easily found.
Anywho, legibility is not affected. One stockist – wickeduncle.co.uk – says it was a tale of crime which persuaded them to stock the Spineless Classics:
“Two angelic five year old twin girls at a book show saw the Alice in Wonderland poster and started to read it. Their father wouldn’t buy it for them, so they tried to hijack it and the owner had to call security. Kids really, really like these,” said a chap from Wicked Uncle.
