There is no more enjoyable activity for the mind than reading a book. And there is no more enjoyable activity for the eye than looking at fantastically visualized book quotes.
We’ve already shared our admiration for Risa Rodil’s illustrations, which through the enjoyable form spread the positive energy reading books is about.
It’s extremely exciting to discover Risa Rodil is not alone in bringing the wisdom of books to the visual side of living.
Simini Blocker is a talented, New York-based illustrator, graphic designer, and, most importantly, book nerd, who “loves living in the city, especially with its extensive library system.”
A graduate of the Brigham Young University, she was an intern in the visual development department at Disney Interactive. Among companies which commissioned her work so far are Goodreads, Simon & Schuster, Scholastic, and The Friends Magazine.
You can find an entire collection of Blocker’s book quote illustrations on her Tumblr blog. However, book quotes are only a part of her growing collection of amazing illustrations. Make sure to explore other works on her portfolio website and Society 6 profile page.
If you are desperate to get one of the book quote illustrations as a poster you could hang on the wall, you can easily make it happen by visiting INPRNT. It’s an online gallery and store offering quality prints from the world’s top artists.
Let’s hope Simini Blocker will release at least a part of her quote illustrations in other stores as well – such as Etsy, Society 6, or Redbubble – to reach even more people who want to express their love for books.
Book quotes on illustrations by Simini Blocker

You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.
One must always be careful of books, and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.
Sleep is good, and books are better.
–George R.R. Martin
