I had never heard of Litographs before today. They've taken the text of a hundred books and used it to create designs on t-shirts, tote bags and posters. Here, for example, is A Tale Of Two Cities (should I have warned "spoiler alert?"):

And here it is close up:

Their browsing interface is like Facebook, an infinite page that keeps growing longer and longer. That works for Facebook, but gets irritating when you are trying to shop, I think. Here are the hundred titles:

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, A Christmas Carol, A Doll's House, A Little Princess, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, A Tale of Two Cities, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Adventures of Pinocchio, Aesop's Fables, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Anna Karenina, Around the World in 80 Days, Crime and Punishment, Don Quixote, Dracula, Dubliners, Emma, Five Weeks in a Balloon, Frankenstein, Great Expectations, Grimms' Fairy Tales, Gulliver's Travels, Heart of Darkness, Jane Eyre, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Just So Stories, Lady Chatterley's Lover, Leaves of Grass, Les Miserables, Little Women, Madame Bovary, Moby Dick, Notes from Underground, Oliver Twist, On the Origin of Species, Opticks, Paradise Lost, Persuasion, Peter Pan, Poems by T S Eliot, Poke the Box, Pride and Prejudice, Principles of Geology, Pygmalion, Robinson Crusoe, Sense and Sensibility, Siddhartha, Tarzan of the Apes, Tess of the D'urbervilles, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Aeneid, The Age of Innocence, The Arabian Nights, The Art of War, The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, The Bible, The Canterbury Tales, The Chemical History of a Candle, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Divine Comedy, The Great Gatsby, The History of Creation, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Iliad, The Importance of Being Earnest, The Invisible Man, The Island of Dr Moreau, The Jungle Book, The Kama Sutra, The Last Unicorn, The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, The Metamorphosis, The Mysterious Island, The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci, The Odyssey, The Phantom of the Opera, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Poetical Works of William Wordsworth, The Prince, The Republic, The Scarlet Letter, The Secret Garden, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, The Three Musketeers, The Time Machine, The Torah, The War of the Worlds, The Wind in the Willows, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Works of Edgar Allan Poe, Think and Grow Rich, This Side of Paradise, Treasure Island, Ulysses, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Walden, War and Peace, White Fang, and Wuthering Heights.

Non-English novels are rendered in translation, even The Notebooks Of Leonardo Da Vinci and The Torah.

You will note they have Pinocchio. I'm sure that if someone wanted to buy a lot of those, Dot Reed would be willing to award them to deserving people at City Council meetings.
