Author and bon mot thrower Truman Capote once said of Jack Kerouac’s writing, “That’s not writing, that’s typing.” Now you can have that famed witticism–and many more–on a set of cleverly art directed posters. New York-based artist Evan Robertson has created a series of posters inspired by some of the most well-known and turned out literary one liners.
LA Times reports:
Robertson has created 15 illustrations to go along with literary quotations. There are novelists, poets, a philosopher, quippers and criticizers.
[…]Robertson has done his homework; he describes the literary context of each quote on the sales pages of his Etsy shop, Obvious State. For example, Capote had some specific writing (or was it typing?) in mind: He was criticizing the work of Jack Kerouac. Which gives his quote a little extra edge.
