From the creators of the popular Bibliophilia Postcard Box, this clever book of postcards features 12 famous quotes from literature graphically arranged to reveal the hidden “modern” meaning behind the classic text: when Elizabeth Bennett is spurning Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice, artfully placed type and spot glossed color reveals that she’s really telling him “hell no!” When Romeo admonishes the cruelty of the world in Romeo and Juliet, he’s really saying “OMG!” Each type-driven design breathes new life into classic literature, sure to delight book lovers of all stripes. The 24 cards, (12 designs repeating twice each) are bound into a miniature “book” package to complete the liteary conceit.
OBVIOUS STATE STUDIO is a design studio co-founded by Evan and Nichole Robertson specializing in literary-inspired art objects. Nichole Robertson is the author of the books, Paris in Color and Paris in Love.
