Posters and stationery items presenting most famous quotes from books are among most sought-after literary gifts.
The only question is why feature a single sentence if you can deliver the entire piece?
Obvious State proves that you can successfully combine the nature of a greeting card with the pleasure of reading the work of a famous author from the first to last sentence.
The collection of short-form reads on greeting cards includes twelve items masterfully designed by Nicole and Evan Robertson. You’ll find here classic stories by Edgar Allan Poe (The Black Cat), James Joyce (Araby), O. Henry (The Gift of the Magi), and Virginia Woolf (Kew Garden), among others.
That’s not all. If you are fond of poetry, you will love the cards featuring the classic poem by T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, and Arthur Rimbaud’s The Drunken Boat.
Short story cards can make a wonderful gift for book lovers, no matter the occasion. Each one costs only $5.50, is printed on a premium textured 270 gsm Mohawk archival paper, and comes with a white linen envelope.
If you were looking for literary gifts before, you’ve most probably come across gorgeous literary posters designed by Obvious State. It’s one of the most popular Etsy shops for book lovers.
Besides cards and posters, Nicole and Evan Robertson offer their artwork on mugs, tote bags, calendars, and even wine totes.
