The Phantom Billstickers Poems on Posters initiative has seen posters of Kiwi poetry pasted up all over the world; in London, Glasgow, Paris, Austria, Australia and the United States. It's the brainchild of Jim Wilson, who started the project in 2009. His aim is to use posters to share the heart of the Kiwi poet with people outside of New Zealand, and to that effect, eight Kiwi poets are flying to New York next week for a live poetry performance at Saatchi & Saatchi on 28 February. To help spread the word about the event, Phantom have put Janet Frame's poetry poster, The End, up in bright lights on a billboard in Times Square.

Now, no matter where you are in the world, you're never far from a poem reminding you of home. It's all thanks to a project started in 2009 by Phantom's Jim Wilson. So... what's the reason for all this rhyme?
