    I Turned Every Song From Taylor Swift's "Folklore" Into A Poster — Here Are The Results

    "Betty, one time I was riding on my skateboard, when I passed your house it's like I couldn't breathe."

    Hi! My name is Jackie and I'm a graphic designer and illustrator. I'm also a huge Taylor Swift fan. In honor of her new album, folklore, I made a visual interpretation of each song on the album!

    Republic Records

    Here are the results:

    1. "the 1"

    A girl sitting on a ledge tossing pennies into a square, blue pool below her
    Jackie Maldonado

    "But we were something, don't you think so? Roaring twenties, tossing pennies in the pool; and if my wishes came true, it would've been you."

    2. "cardigan"

    A man and a woman dancing under a street light, with blue stars surrounding them
    Jackie Maldonado

    "But I knew you, dancin' in your Levi's, drunk under a streetlight, I, I knew you, hand under my sweatshirt..." (peep the stars on *the* cardigan)

    3. "the last great american dynasty"

    a girl sitting on the rocks by the ocean looking up at the moon and a sky full of stars
    Jackie Maldonado

    "They say she was seen on occasion, pacing the rocks, staring out at the midnight sea."

    4. "exile" (feat. Bon Iver)

    an empty movie theater with a blank screen and a door on the side of the theater that's been left open
    Jackie Maldonado

    "I think I've seen this film before, so I'm leaving out the side door"

    5. "my tears ricochet"

    A casket with a single rose laying on top of it and a tree with no leaves
    Jackie Maldonado

    "And if I'm dead to you, why are you at the wake?"

    6. "mirrorball"

    a girl walking across a tightrope with a disco ball hanging above her
    Jackie Maldonado

    "I'm still on that tightrope, I'm still trying everything to get you laughing at me"

    7. "seven"

    Two girls, one with long straight hair and one with braids, swinging next to each other on swings with clouds in the sky
    Jackie Maldonado

    "I hit my peak at seven, feet in the swing over the creek ... your braids like a pattern, love you to the Moon and to Saturn"

    8. "august"

    An unmade bed with tiny stars swirling around it
    Jackie Maldonado

    "August slipped away into a moment in time, cause it was never mine, and I can see us twisted in bedsheets"

    9. "this is me trying"

    A tall front door with windows on either side and a mail slot
    Jackie Maldonado

    "And maybe I don't quite know what to say, but I'm here in your doorway"

    10. "illicit affairs"

    A perfume bottle with different types of flowers and leaves growing out of the sides
    Jackie Maldonado

    "Leave the perfume on the shelf, that you picked out just for him, so you leave no trace behind like you don’t even exist"

    11. "invisible string"

    A boy sitting in a car and a girl sitting under a tree reading, connected by a string that's tied itself into little hearts
    Jackie Maldonado

    "Green was the color of the grass, where I used to read at Centennial Park ... Bad was the blood of the song in the cab, on your first trip to LA ... And isn't it just so pretty to think all along there was some invisible string tying you to me?"

    12. "mad woman"

    A scorpion with its tail in the air
    Jackie Maldonado

    "Does a scorpion sting when fighting back? They strike to kill, and you know I will"

    13. "epiphany"

    A girl sitting on a windowsill overlooking the mountains and the birds
    Jackie Maldonado

    "But you dream of some epiphany, just one single glimpse of relief"

    14. "betty"

    a suburban house with a girl skateboarding in front of it
    Jackie Maldonado

    "Betty, one time I was riding on my skateboard, when I passed your house it's like I couldn't breathe"

    15. "peace"

    A picture frame holding a picture of a tiny house on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean
    Jackie Maldonado

    "Your integrity makes me seem small, you paint dreamscapes on the wall"

    16. "hoax"

    A girl standing on the edge of a tall cliff, overlooking the sky and the stars, with nothing below her
    Jackie Maldonado

    "Stood on the cliffside screaming, "Give me a reason" your faithless love's the only hoax I believe in"
