Tristan and Iseult

This A0 poster shows the romantic story of Tristan and Iseult, stripped of all description to a ‘base’ story.

Exploring the often-mentioned notion that there are only 6-7 truly original stories in the world… So what keeps our interest? Is it the descriptions, variations and embellishments?

So, starting with this medieval story of doomed lovers; I wanted to see how it would hold up with all description and detail removed. The ghost of these embellishments have been left, and the story can be read both in its distilled form or in the original, embellished telling.
