Great Gatsby to Kanye to Dickens

Kickstarter, groundbreaking crowdsource independent funding site, has achieved funding for the NovelPoster project. It celebrates the "evolution of writing" creating word-image posters featuring the whole text of five great novels or five semi-legible ultra-popular twitter accounts. This puts Kanye West in the company of, yet again, Charles Dickens.

Such lines still fill Blood Is One's memory: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times;" "fur coats and shit"

Yeah, Shaq's on there. Notable neglect of his hiphop legacy.
