Gorgeous literature silkscreen prints

A man's posters are a window into his life's greatest concerns: as a teenager, it's usually semi-naked girls and beloved bands. University days see a progression to favoured films and political ideologies. For the discerning 20-30 something, you're probably wanting something that indicates your cultured, well rounded interests.

Tracie Ching's Well Read should instantly snare your refined attention. Her stunning silkscreen print series explores the relationship between classic literature and their contemporary film adaptations - noting the 'creative filters' the subsequent artists apply to a creator's original work.

Set to be exhibited at Chicago’s Galerie F from 28 March, three of the five works to have received Ching's attention have been revealed so far: War of the Worlds, The Great Gatsby and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz are each worthy of an 18 by 24 inch slot on your wall.

You can check out more of Ching's work on her site, and be sure to keep an eye on Galerie F's store in early April for news on when the prints will be on sale.
