Phantom Billstickers and the Janet Frame Literary Trust Present: Scan the poster and hear the poet.
Rediscover New Zealand’s literary icon on her birthday, August 28th
To celebrate Janet Frame's birthday, 28 August, Phantom Billstickers will be placing posters
featuring her poem "Daniel" throughout New Zealand.
Look for the posters starting on Saturday the 25th of August and scan the QR code with your
smart phone to hear Janet Frame reading the poem. Also look for a new book of short stories
by Janet Frame, “Gorse is Not People: New and Uncollected Stories” launched on the
15th of August.
Phantom Billstickers loves Janet Frame. Ms. Frame passed away in 2004 long before the
era of the smart phone. Now, a new generation of poetry lovers can hear her voice by
connecting with new technology. A little bit of magic that. We hope Janet would have liked it.
Phantom Billstickers feels that QR Codes and other dynamic technology is the future of
engaging people on the streets.
