Reimagining classic fables as colorful bouquets
Flowers, like fables, start innocently enough and transform into something beautiful. Æsop Blooms connects these two ideas—transforming the text of famous fables into colorful bouquets of flowers. Posters were created for the 147 fables from the book, The Æsop for Children—each with a unique colorful palette based on photos of flowers and nature landscapes.
How to read them: Each poster includes an entire fable. Each flower is a paragraph from that fable and its petals are the words. The size of each petal corresponds to the length of the word. Petal rotation is clockwise from top and is based on when words occur in each paragraph with the shortest in front and longest in back. The size of the core at the center of each flower corresponds to the length of the paragraph and is numbered for when it occurs in the fable.
