I absolutely LOVE the minimalist paper cut-out effect of these posters, which were created by Columbian ad agency Lowe/SSP3 to promote the Colsubsidio Book Exchange. Don’t they evoke a wonderful balance of nostalgia and imagination? In fact, I was so caught up in the fabulous design that it took me a while to notice there was a second storybook character cleverly hidden in each poster! Can you find the mashups?

    EEE–this is amazing! Snow White is my favorite, of course, and Sherlock is the perfect tongue in cheek character to hide in her curls!

    Very cool. I love how minimalist it is, but you still know what it is. The dual images are really neat.

    That is seriously awesome. Reminds me of those old optical illusions where you see an old lady and a young lady in the one picture!

    Wow, these are so clever! I can see the 2nd story book character but I’m not sure exactly who it is!! I love images that play tricks like this though.
