A few weeks ago I painted my bathroom. I got a new shower curtain, shower caddy, towels, etc. etc. Not wanting to miss a single thing in this makeover, I also wanted some new art to hang in it. Ask [the internet] and ye shall receive.
I received a Litograph.
Litographs are prints created from the text of classic books. The posters come in two sizes – 18×24 and 24×36 (the entire novel usually fits on the larger of the two) – and colour or black and white. When mine arrived, the first thing I did was unroll it and try to read it, and even in the 18×24, the text is totally legible.
I ordered Emma, which was quite possible the girliest one on the website (I see now they have Pride & Prejudice but I stand by my original choice). New prints are added every week and the prices are very good. It’s a wonderful way to enjoy your favourite novels as art on your walls.
And, if owning a unique piece of book-inspired art wasn’t enough, for every print you buy, Litographs helps send one book to a community in need, through the International Book Bank.
