A Good Book – is a friend for life

poster a good book

This poster is derived from an Art Nouveau advertising poster which I have always admired. The original was by Koloman Moser and produced around 1900.

The printing process for the original poster would have limited the design to relatively simple blocks of only seven colour and was used in advertising for an illustrated book.

I have repurposed the original for this poster, but kept to the style, colours and theme of the original. The titling is completely new.

I am intrigued that the dark grey of the book cover and the background to the type are the same, but the surrounding colours make you see the book as darker.

This poster is available to purchase in three sizes. All prints are made to order and produced on a silk matt 170gsm paper. A visual guide to these is shown below:
