Pithy Literary Posters Perfect for Writers’ Salons

Still tickled by Capote’s epic and oft-quoted insult to Kerouac’s writing? Agree with William Faulkner that “civilization begins with distillation”? Now you can have them in poster form, accompanied by lovely minimalist illustrations by New York-based artist Evan Robertson. Robertson, whose poster series we discovered over at Jacket Copy, describes his work as “inspired by my love of literature, word play and straight-shooting language,” and indeed, the prints are filled with visual puns and insider nudges that will have the word nerds among you punning with delight. Plus, it never hurts to add a little extra literary wisdom to your décor. Click through to browse ten of our favorites from Robertson’s collection, and then if you must have one for your study, salon, or writers’ retreat, head over to his Etsy shop to make one of them your very own.
