Word Gazing

You know Orion and The Little Dipper, but did you know your favorite stories are also written in the stars? Nicholas Rougeux's genius poster transforms classic novels—from Robinson Crusoe to The Secret Garden—into stunning cosmic works. He takes the first sentence from each chapter, transforming each word into a star with its own position and size based on its length and part of speech. The result is a unique way to look at and read a beloved story. Send the piece to your favorite literary or space geek, so they can enjoy an unchartered narrative universe. Made in Chicago, Illinois.
