All The World's a Page


The surest way to plumb an educated person's thinking is to spend time perusing his or her bookcase--where they keep those volumes deemed fit for repeat readings, preservation and display. But the bibliophile's predicament has always been how to give emphasis to a favorite book.

All The World's a Page has a solution. The German printing and design company has mastered the craft of committing classic works of literature to 2-foot by 3-foot sheets of 150-gram paper. Bookworms can now make their favorite books the centerpieces of their favorite rooms.

So far, All The World's a Page has made available 19 such classics, including James Joyce's Ulysses, Herman Melville's Moby Dick and the King James Bible--the longest, clocking in at 823,437 words. Foreign-language titles, faithfully rendered in their mother tongues, include Goethe's Faust I & II in German, Cervantes' Don Quixote in Spanish and Tolstoy's War and Peace, printed in Russian and French.

All titles cost $27, sans shipping--roughly what one would pay for a decent leather-bound copy of any of these books--making the posters a perfect gift for that bookish friend with no room left on the shelf but plenty on the wall.
