The design of these vintage-style book quotes was inspired by title pages from 18th-century books.
One may say that, when it comes to book quotes, everything has been done.
All most interesting book and library quotes have been already discovered, and many book lovers know them by heart.
What’s more, the quotes have been visualized in numerous ways, making them easy to share in social media.
Most of the designs share the same style: cozy and somehow messy. They mix font faces and styles with bright colors, and fill the entire space. As a result, you see something that may be too overwhelming.
On the other side, it’s surprising that the iconic book design of 17th, 18th, or 19th century has not yet been picked as a style inspiration. It’s so beautiful, and – what’s most important – so very bookish!
That’s why I have decided to pick up some of my book quotes and design them in the vintage style of 18th century book titles, with a spacy layout, a decent use of ornaments, and the classic Baskerville font face as a style hero.

Original vintage-style book quotes
Life is like a novel, with you being both its author and main character.
Reading is an act of selfless help to oneself.
My brain is proudly powered by books.
Movies are the keyhole. Books are the key.
Life is lighter with a heavy bookshelf.
I see a book, I see a coffee, I see a good day ahead.
A book is not an escape from life, but a shortcut to a better one.
A book is a first-aid box for the mind.
