Posterrific Adventure of Anna Warrick
Typographic Illustrated Story Book
This book was made for a simple reason; I love to create illustrations, concept art and (obviously) typography. The additional text in each of the illustrations helps to make for a wonderful poster that can be used for virtually anything at all! The idea that drove this was a simple one; ‘what if EVERY page in a book could be a poster?’ – that’s the basic concept underlying the ‘Posterrific Adventure of Anna Warrick’, originally intended purely as an experiment.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This is an experimental storybook about Anna Warrick’s adventure inside the World of Posters. The script and story on each page are integrated into illustrations that are actually poster worlds. In the story, Anna jumps from poster to poster, visiting the worlds of movies, travel, fashion and others until she finds the one poster where she belongs. The reader is challenged to read the script within the illustration while enjoying the story. This self-published English-Japanese bilingual book consists of 16 different posters and will be launched in Fall 2015 (Northern Hemisphere).

The research behind this book was started first by looking through references (particularly posters) encompassing a variety of visual styles and themes. As an example, a classic movie poster (as shown in the first illustration) usually has a monochrome color and the subjects centrally positioned. The font used within these posters also tends to be distorted in a diagonally direction or through depth/perspective to add movement and create a grand or heroic atmosphere.
This particular concept does not allow for last minute revision as the fonts are integrated to the drawing. Changing the script or grammatical error means that the entire layout needs to be changed.
