Hang on every word

Litographs is a family business located in Cambridge, Massachusetts that’s bringing the art of writing to life like never before. Using full or partial manuscripts, Litographs posters create a pictorial representation of classic novels, as well as a handful of sacred texts and non-fiction works. From a distance, the artwork illustrates a theme, character, or setting from each book. Move closer and the text becomes fully legible. Custom printed for high-resolution quality, the posters are Made in the USA of vinyl infused paper, which is water and tear-resistant for durability. Company founders and brothers Danny and Corey Fein have a great appreciation for the beauty of the written word, so it’s no wonder that they're committed to promoting literacy both here in the United States and abroad. For each product sold, they partner with the International Book Bank to donate a new, high-quality book to a community in need. Litographs give all new meaning to the saying a picture is worth a thousand words.

    Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share our literary posters with you, and to answer any questions you have about our art, process, and mission.

    My brother Corey and I started Litographs to bring new life to classic books and to rethink how we express our passion for literature. We're constantly thinking about new, tasteful ways to represent our favorite books.

    I look forward to hearing your thoughts about how books are changing (and staying the same). Have you downsized your bookshelves as you've built up your Kindle library? Have you found new ways to display books that are meaningful to you?

    Hi Britt,

    Right now they do not come framed, however there may be an option in the future. We'll be sure to let the community know if that happens. Which one are you thinking of purchasing?

    Very, very cool. Do you do custom work? I have a client who has just written their first book, this would be a great commemorative/conversation piece/corporate gift.

    These are amazing. I was so happy to see you have Anne of Green Gables! I plan on ordering one for me and one for my sister also as a Christmas gift. I would love to see one made for another favorite book of mine Where The Red Fern Grows in the future! Any of the Harry Potter books would be cool also. These are great gift ideas for all the book lovers I know! Congrats on your launch!

    These are fabulous ideas. Which was your favorite book growing up? Mine was To Kill a Mockingbird.

    @Amy I think Anne of Green Gables was my all time favorite when I was young. I read that book over and over again! I still enjoy reading it every few years. There is something about the books you read when you are young, that sick with you forever! I don't have any children, but I buy books for children of friends and family. I think it is so important to get them interested in reading early! Nothing like getting lost in a book, no matter what your age!

    this is a FANTASTIC idea!!! can think of about 5 book lovers off the top of my head who would love these as gifts. if one gets the smaller size with, for example, moby dick, can i assume you begin your text at the beginning of book?

    much good luck with this!

    Hi All,

    We're so excited to be launching this today and it's gotten our office talking about their favorite books growing up. So far we have Island of the Blue Dolphins, The Giant Turnip, To Kill a Mockingbird and Trixie Beldon. What were your some of your favorites?

    @Amy 3 of my favorite books growing up that I read, and reread, was Anne of Green Gables, Where the Red Fern Grows (keep tissues handy), and The Secret Garden.

    Yes that would be great. Litographs is a small business so they're starting out creating what they can manage at the moment. I bet if you check back soon, there will be more options.

    Have you thought about doing The Night Before Christmas? It has always been a family tradition to read it every year. Also can we get Where the Wild Things Are now.
