Literary posters describe famous writers by their most notable works (pictures)
Literary posters from Creative Daffodil are an inspiring way to share the love for books and reading.
We’ve seen a few poster ideas that cleverly describe literary works, and it’s great new works are being released.
Creative Daffodil is a design studio that offers literary posters and t-shirts that share the love for books and reading by giving the viewer the chance to decode the hidden message.
The most important part of each poster is a symbol that refers to the author’s most prominent book or character.
For instance, it’s a bug for Franz Kafka, a rose window of Notre-Dame cathedral for Victor Hugo, or three rapiers for Alexandre Dumas. These are, of course, the easiest symbols. For some other authors and their works, you’ll have to spend a bit more time to discover the hidden meaning.
What’s also very interesting is that the title of the book is not revealed anywhere in the poster. Instead, the visual features the author’s name, the dates of birth and death, and a small icon of the country of birth.
In total, there are over one hundred layouts in the “Ode to Literature” collection. You’ll find here visuals for Emily Bronte, Mary Shelley, Virginia Woolf, Milan Kundera, Ernest Hemingway, Oscar Wilde, and Ray Bradbury, among others.
Mylene Almeida, the owner of Creative Daffodil, says:
My purpose is to bring that love of reading, of learning, and that yearning to “follow knowledge like a sinking star” into our walls, our homes, the very places we retreat for comfort and reflection.
You can buy the literary posters from Creative Daffodil on Etsy. Each design is available in several sizes, from 8 × 10 to 16 × 24 inches. Prices start from $16. There is also a possibility to order the poster in a different format. Just message the dimensions to the shop owner while making an order.
Most of the layouts from “Ode to Literature” collection are also available on literary t-shirts.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
The Hunger Games Prequel
by Suzanne Collins
Part 1: The Mentor
Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
