LIT Series: Molly Bloom

My inspiration came from two very different places. The first was the film “A Place in the Sun” (1951, dir. George Stevens) – this is where the still images are from.

“Yes” is the most positive word in the English language, and Joyce uses it within a deeply romantic context. The still images from “A Place in the Sun” struck me as a perfect visual representation of Joyce’s words.

My second inspiration was Yoko Ono’s 1966 installation exhibit “Ceiling Painting”, at the Indica Gallery in London. It’s said that this is where she and John Lennon first met.
Project Info
  • LIT Series: Molly Bloom
    print design
  • Two posters (11″ x 17″ and 11″ x 27″) designed in honor of Bloomsday, the international celebration and live communal reading of James Joyce’s epic Ulysses. The words here are the last lines of the last chapter of the book, “Penelope”.

    *NOTE: in the first poster, each “stem” is a line of text from the final words of Ulysses (as seen in the close-up). The second poster contains the exact same text.
