The founding documents of the United States—the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights—are among the most beautiful and inspiring documents ever written. Even more remarkable about them is that they are living documents: more than two centuries after their writing, they continue to guide not just the day-to-day government of the United States but are also the inspiration behind many of the most vibrant and robust democracies around the world today.
Yet despite their impact on our lives, the words themselves are often treated as museum pieces, text that is to be seen but not read, lived by but interpreted by politicians, judges, and lawyers.
This is the first in a series of posters designed to take the text of some of the world’s great documents and make them readable for a modern audience. In this display-worth 18- by 24-inch poster—perfect for framing and display in a home, office, or classroom—the National Archives and Records Administration’s official transcript of the Declaration of Independence is beautifully typeset in readable, modern type. Yet the piece is elegant enough to convey the timeless quality of this remarkable document and complement any decor.
This is a patriotic piece that will display your love for America and the principles this country stands for. But it is also about our Founders’ belief in humanity and the inalienable rights we all share, regardless of the nation we live in: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Read, enjoy, be inspired by, and share America’s beautiful Declaration of Independence this Independence Day and every day with this one-of-a-kind poster. You will find nothing else like it in any shop, on the Internet, or anywhere else.
