Modern fairytale posters



How rad are these minimalist posters of classic children's stories? The Princess and the Pea is my favorite. And did you spot the wolf's paw in Red Riding Hood? Eeks!

ooh I love these, so graphic. They really capture the essence of each fairy tail while making them a bit mysterious like a mod-movie poster.

I think the ugly duckling is my favorite, there is nothing really "wrong" with the duck, he just has his head down- like it's all in his head. nice message.

I LOVE these!
Rapunzel and Snow White are so cute!
I love how they're minimal and have pretty bold colours!

Wow, you're right. Too cool!

Amanda Greer said...

My favourite is Mary Poppins!

Abigail - I like the thought that it's all in the duckling's head!

Erin said...

Those are incredible. The colors on the Princess and the Pea poster are perfect for a fall moodboard. And I love the wolf's claw peeking out from behind a tree in the Little Red Riding Hood poster. Great find!

Aw, these minimalist posters are amazing. I love The Ugly Duckling, and Mary Poppins posters.

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Ohhh I do love those! These would look great in a neutral nursery. Very cool!

Daisy said...

The posters are so amazing..I didn't see the wolf's paw until I read what you wrote at the bottom. Cool.

So simple, so amazing!!!
Simple things are the hardest to achieve.

Ah! I love these! I want to get the Snow White for the playroom. Very apropos, since P is a teacher.

P.S. I wonder what Hansel and Gretel would look like. I imagine just a string of crumbs.

i love the simplicity and cleverness of these designs. the rest in the series are fab, too, esp. "alice in wonderland" - funny how the cheshire cat's smile is so recognizable )

Shia said...

Love these! Do you know how often I use The Princess and the Pea as a reference and people have NO CLUE what I am talking about. I guess it is one fairy tale that hasn't been glamorized by Disney so everyone forgets..sigh! I think these would make a great Christmas present for my niece. Thanks for sharing!!
