I love bookish goodies almost as much as I love actual books, and reading. Being a bookworm is not a hobby: it is an all-enveloping, personality-defining lifestyle. The holiday season is just getting started, which means it is time to go shopping the literary way! Over the next two weeks, I will take you on a virtual bookish shopping spree to some of my favourite lit sites!
In 2013, we visited some wonderful literary museums. This year, I am delighted to showcase several amazing book-themed Etsy shops. Let’s get started!
Obvious State makes bold, high-quality, well-priced literary prints and paper goods. I could easily decorate an entire room around their gorgeous black-and-white art.
TWO OF MY FAVOURITE PIECES:
“Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?”-Albert Camus (died on 4 January 1960)
“Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood.”-T.S. Eliot (died on 4 January 1965)
‘The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock’ by T. S. Eliot. The animation on this video is extremely odd and disturbing, much like the poet himself.
Let us go then, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky
