Design Porn: 50 Shades of Grey Poster


Everyone seems to have an opinion on E L James' 50 Shades of Grey. Love it or hate it, it's now the fastest-selling paperback of all time, and you can't move in London for people getting hot and sweaty on the train because of their choice of reading material. Apparently the Central Line is the perfect spot for reading a bit of soft porn.

I haven't read the whole thing, although I know some of the other Domestic Sluts have. It's not likely to be one of the books we include in the Sluttery Book Club but I have read bits and while I wasn't that impressed, I'm very impressed with how quickly word of mouth works with something a little bit controversial.

I also really like this tongue-in-cheek 50 Shades of Grey poster. It pokes fun at the 50 Shades phenomenon and appeals to my love of paint charts. I particularly like the colours African Parrot and Grey Matter. Actually, if these were real paints, Kat would not doubt be eyeing them up for her flat.


Whether you love or hate the book, this ironic poster is actually very clever, and rather nice to look at. And it's just £9.99 from Firebox. You might not have it on your wall for long, but it would make a fun gift for someone who was a fan of the books. Or a fan of paint charts.

  1. The book is vastly overrated - there is much better written stuff out there on the various fan-fiction archives... read them and you'll discover '50 Shades' is poorly written, derivative, pwp porn... and how they think they're going to make a film of it amazes me, especially when 'Secratery' has already said it all.

    But the poster - I like!
