One of our favorite styles of scratch off posters is the scratch off book poster. These are similar to others in that they’re a “bucket-list” where you’re able to scratch off books you’ve read, and encourages you to read more classic books. Let’s take a look at our favorite scratch off bucket list book posters below.
1. Enno Vatti Scratch off Books Poster
Size: 16.5″ x 23.4″
You might remember the Enno Vatti brand as our top choice for the top 100 movies scratch off poster. This shouldn’t be a surprise that they’ve also won the top spot in the essential books category with a poster in a similar style.
We’re huge fans of Enno Vatti’s style. They have such a cool artistic rendering for each book. Whether it’s a oldie or a new classic, the artwork flows in quite a nice and simplistic style. Each book features the title, the author’s name, and unique artwork showcasing that book.
The criteria for choosing the best 100 books is up for debate, but we’re guessing it was just a judgement call on the manufacturers part. But there are old classics like The Great Gatsby all the way to newer classics like Harry Potter.
This scratch off book poster comes inside a easily giftable tube/box. It makes for a really unique gift for any reader.
2. Anpro Scratch off Book Poster
Size: 16.5″ x 23.4″
Next up is this poster from the folks over at Anpro. What we like about this poster is that they have similar custom artwork as the Enno Vatti poster above. For those who prefer something a little lighter than the black of the Enno Vatti, the Anpro poster does a much better job at brightening up your room.
This poster ships in a protective and decorative tube, and as an added layer of protection: paper to protect the foil layer. This is also a great choice if you don’t want to spend a lot of money. Not only is this poster a great value, but it also comes with some cool accessories.
- Plastic scratcher
- Metal scraper
- Double-sided tape
- Black cloth for wiping
It’s super convenient that Anpro included a metal AND a plastic scratching tool for the poster. In that linked post you’ll see that we’re a big fan of the guitar pick as a tool, and if you don’t have one laying around, you’ll get one with this poster. Be careful with the metal scraper, though. Metal scrapers can easily slice a hole through the poster material, so do some light scratching to be safe.
Overall you can’t go wrong with the Anpro scratch off top 100 books poster if you want something a bit lighter than the Enno Vatti, you’ll really like this poster.
3. Amy and Umy Scratch off Books Poster
Size: 16.5″ x 23.4″
Last but not least is this top 100 books bucket-list scratch poster from Amy and Umy. These folks claim to have selected their books according to the book’s popularity, ratings, and awards received.
We consider this poster to be the more ‘classical’ in terms of poster design. The border, font, and overall color reminds us of a poster you might find at a library. If you’re not a fan of the artistic reimagining of book covers and would prefer more accurate cover images, this is your poster.
The silver foil covers up each book’s cover, which is printed very colorfully. Unlike the other posters, this one has their books in order by year published. There’s such a great selection of both old and new books that range all the way back to 1813 with Pride and Prejudice, and goes all the way up to the recent classic from 2018 with There, There.
Framing your Scratch off Books Poster
Each of our top 3 posters are the exact same size: 16.5″ x 23.4″. In the poster world this size is so common that it’s also known as “A2” and can easily be framed by searching out A2 style poster frames. We know that framing any poster that you’ll be scratching means you probably want an open cover so that you don’t need to remove the poster each time you finish a book.
The good news is that there are coverless frames, and we’ve picked the best in our scratch off map frames article.
There are so many great scratch off poster ideas out there and we were thrilled to find a category for books that are both classic and essential reading.
What better way to make reading even more fun by challening yourself to read as many top 100 books as you can. It’s also a terrific gift for anyone who loves to read. We have scratch off world maps for the travelers, scratch off movie posters for the film buffs, and now we have the top book scratch off poster for the book worms out there.
