John O'Sullivan is a designer with a mission. He has taken the common belief that all famous writers are raging alcoholics and turned it on its head in order to share some real facts about such celebrated individuals. John O'Sullivan has created posters and post-cards that hone in on what else these writers' noses can tell about them.

From Oscar Wilde and Kingsley Amis to Charles Bukowski and Ernest Hemingway, John O'Sullivan has designed a "visual encyclopedia of literature, literary movements, and the greatest literary figures," as he puts it. It includes 100 icons, some key facts about each as well as a stand-out quote that rounds out the striking abstract portraits he has impressively created.
