Litographs is a company with a line of prints featuring the entire text of a book using the words themselves to form a picture.  They sell these as prints/posters and on t-shirts.  Want to own a beautiful picture of Alice falling down the rabbit hole that is also, when you look close, the entire text of Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland?  Want to walk down the street actually wearing a favorite book?
