Man goes on 4 voyages each of which there are deeply rooted themes. The places he ends up are strange and fantastical. One place he's a giant, the next he's tiny, the place after that is a floating island, and then in the last there are talking horse like creatures.
Different themes are: might vs. right; individual vs. society; limits of human understanding

1. cover: four symbols of each voyage
poster: each symbol from the cover would make up a collage for each voyage in four different windows
2. cover: close up of rope
poster: full view of Gulliver tied down as a giant
3. cover: looks big (giant Gulliver)
poster: little Gulliver in comparison to some large object
4. cover: small descriptive type of different voyages or things within the places
poster: big Gulliver made out of type
possible type style: http://www.flickr.com/photos/isaiasloaiza/432000632/
5. cover: collage of different voyages with belly band
poster: title made out of collage
6. cover: reversible-could be big or little Gulliver, or any object
poster: reversible-" "
(7-10: each could be separate mini books/smaller posters of each part/ voyage from the book)
7. cover/ poster: playing with size. In this location the society is very prideful, but are actually really tiny people
8. cover/ poster: again playing with size. This place the people are giants, but quite humble. Gulliver talks about women's giant pores at one point
9-10. cover/posters: representations of the actual place, but still needs work on concept.
