Graphic Novels Display
Graphic novels are eternally popular at our library. This simple display was created to celebrate the range of graphic novels available and hopefully entice some new readers to try these engaging texts. It also made an excellent ‘filler’ display for a week when we weren’t celebrating any particular special day or event.
The background for the lettering was created by photocopying a few pages from a variety of popular graphic novel titles. I then cut them into triangles, varying the length and width. I stuck the bases of the triangles to a large sheet of white paper. The white lettering is the font Agency FB which I cut using the library’s Cricut machine, and stuck to orange cardboard, which I layered over the top of the sheet holding all the triangles in place.
At first, I was going to add an orange border to the display board, but in the end (and due to lack of time) I left it plain.
This display has been one of our biggest turn-over displays, as I frequently have to replace the books on display. The students also love trying to spot their favourite characters or panels in the slices of artwork.
