Books from floor to ceiling—that’s always been one of my dreams. Leather-bound tomes broken up by long-loved paperbacks as far as the eye can see. Alas, although I definitely accrue more volumes than I can intake, filling my walls with gorgeous books will likely be a lifelong pursuit. Enter another obsession: my connection to eye-catching visuals. I’ve written before about becoming mesmerized by book cover redesigns and my distraction when reading graphic novels, so it should be no surprise that wall art celebrating book love speaks to me.
Here’s a roundup of prints that embrace the bookish spirit:
Bookish (by me)
This one is my own. With my new project, Fabler&Design, I get to help authors explore their voices, and capture each voice with just the right art. It all stems from that most basic tendency—being a bit bookish. I created this poster for all of us who like to wear our bookishness proudly. Its a freebie so download and enjoy!
