Minimalist Posters of Children's Stories by Christian Jackson

Thursday, 28 July 2011

Christian Jackson has created a series of fifteen posters depicting timeless children's stories using minimalist imagery. Contrary to the bright colors and playful aesthetic typically associated with children's fairytales, Jackson's posters bring out the underlying darkness present in these stories. 

Highlighting classics from The Brothers Grimm Hansel & Gretel and Snow White, to L. Frank Baum's iconic Wizard of Oz, Jackson's designs bring you back to a time of bed-time stories and make believe. Though the subject matter refers to tales of children's literature, Jackson himself has said of his work, “not all images are appropriate for children". Whether you proudly display your favorite childhood story or hang them as a set, these afforable prints would be a tasteful addition to any 'grown-up' home. Jackson's prints are available for purchase here.
