A bibliophile decorator’s dream come true

This is a really fun idea for a poster!  The poster measures 20 by 24" or  51 by 61cm, I wonder if it is large enough to read the text!

At a gallery in Italy several years ago, I remember seeing a handwritten manuscript in tiny tiny print of Dante's entire Divine Comedy -- that you had to use a magnifying glass to read it!  (I was able to verify that all three canticles ended in "stelle.")  This Alice print reminds me of this, but it seems much more practical.  The Moby Dick poster looks pretty cool, too!

You can find the poster here, thanks to the Holiday Matinee's write-up.
