Jaz Parkinson has managed to interpret books in a way that no one else has. She uses color in order to tell the story, all the while eliminating words.

While she is reading a book, whenever a color is referenced, she writes down the color in the order it appeared. The color could either be a direct reference to a shade, or a description of what an object looks like.

When she is done the book, she then transfers these colors onto the page. It's strange that she is actually able to evoke the feeling of the book though these lines, but you can instantly tell if it's a humorous or dramatic book.

Jaz Parkinson has called this series Color Signatures, and that describes the set perfectly. These prints are available in a poster form, which will allow you to represent your favorite literary classics in a completely untraditional way.
