Pithy Writer Posters
See this article From the Los Angeles Times about Evan Robertson’s awesome posters created in response to quotes from a number of writers.
From the article:
Nobel Prize-winning author William Faulkner once said, “Civilization begins with distillation,” and now you can have that on a poster. It’s one of several pithy sayings by authors that have been given visual representation by New York-based artist Evan Robertson.
Robertson has created 15 illustrations to go along with literary quotations. There are novelists, poets, a philosopher, quippers and criticizers. One poster has Molly Bloom’s soliloquy from the end of “Ulysses” (spoiler alert!). Here is a selection of quotes:
