Have you ever considered taking the challenge of “100 books to read in a lifetime?”
The new poster from Pop Chart Lab design studio comes handy both as a helpful guide and a cool wall art.
“100 Essential Novels Scratch-Off Chart” is an 18 × 24-inch poster that includes book covers of 100 classic books. A part of each cover is hidden behind the layer of gold foil that you can scratch off when you finish reading the book.
Gently scratch the gold foil off each novel you’ve read and reveal an additional, narrative-specific design detail hidden underneath!
You’ll find on the poster the books you can’t afford to not read, published from 1605 to present. Catch-22, Fahrenheit 451, Pride and Prejudice, The Grapes of Wrath, or On the Road are among them.
The chart is printed on 100lb archival stock, and you’ll get it delivered in a test tube. You can order it framed or unframed. The framed poster will arrive – for obvious reasons – without the clear acrylic front panel.
