Series of posters featuring the full text and illustrations from classic children's novels
Published:
Typeforce 3
Like the boy Peter, we often struggle with the idea of growing up. Something about the innocence and freedom of childhood resonates as we slowly notice ourselves age. For most, all we have of childhood are faded memories that dimly spark when we sit with our children, or cross paths with some object that ties us to that long forgotten time. Fortunately, the wisdom of age bestows reflection. It empowers the reinvention and exploration of those objects which keep us young.

Peter and Wendy
Story by J. M. Barrie
Illustrations by F. D. Bedford
1911

The poster features the complete original text and etchings from the children’s classic Peter and Wendy. The overprinted quote derives from the work itself as a comment from the character Michael to John during their journey to Neverland. It also serves as a marvelous aphorism regarding the inevitable process of life. “We shall have to go on, for we don’t know how to stop.”

The poster features the complete original text and etchings from the timeless children’s classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
