Jonathan Swift's famous novel Gulliver's Travels recounts the story of a man on an adventure that takes him to distant and unimaginable places. In his travels, Gulliver encounters exotic cultures, languages, and people; each of these concurrences offers some insight into the plight and beauty of humanity in world. This Gulliver's Travels poster uses Swift's original words to cleverly capture Gulliver's encounter with one of these cultures and illustrate the major theme of Swift's work: the fallacy of human self- importance. Gulliver kneels in deference to greet the King of the Lilliputians who, despite his obvious miniscule size in comparison to Gulliver, believes himself to hold the power to control Gulliver's actions. The King is therefore puffed up in pride as he converses with the enormous adventurer. Yet Gulliver portrays the positive aspect of humanity in his willingness to be humble and to try to adapt to a new culture and way of life.
