Classic Posters

The “Greatest Novels of All-Time” poster from designer Johnny Joannou’s UK-based company, On A Sixpence, is a cleverly executed visual celebration of Western civilization’s most revered prose fiction. Using the periodic table of the elements as its organizing scheme, each unit provides information on the book’s title, author, and publication date. Great Expectations, for instance, is notated “gE, Dickens, 1860.” (Crib sheet available on request.) Prints can be personalized to include your favorite book, which will appear as an additional cell on the table. Each poster is individually printed to order and is thus unique. £60/$92

Dickens’ Travel Inkpot

Have you eschewed the smartphone? How about the typewriter? Still traveling around the world scribbling with a quill? If so, you can significantly up your literary style by purchasing a replica of Charles Dickens’ traveling inkpot from the Morgan Library & Museum (which owns the original). You never know when you’ll need to dip your pen in fresh ink as you dash off a description of the sunset over the ruins of the Acropolis. Old Boz would approve wholeheartedly. $79.95
