We’ve seen the fun to be had with the movie 50 Shades of Grey in the parody trailer Fifty Shades Of Steve Buscemi. The book that the movie is based on is renowned for its atrocious prose. The graphic designers at Beutler Ink took such delight in E.L. James’ descriptive phrases that they enshrined them in art.
As you’ll see, the pen is often a blunt instrument in the hands of E.L. James. But the pain of a terrible metaphor only amplifies the pleasure we take from her naughty prose. Feel free to share these with your special someone this Valentine’s Day. (But only if they use a safe word.)
