New Inspirational Author Quote Posters


It's only natural that we look to our heroes when times are tough. It's often authors - who know a thing or two about the written word - that give us the best advice.

New York-based illustrator Evan Robertson, of design studio Obvious State, has released a new set of inspirational quotes from famous authors (following his previous work) to get us back on track. Featuring words of wisdom from the likes of Jules Verne, Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Ayn Rand, each poster features an inspiring quote superimposed over minimalist graphics.

You can buy them as prints from Obvious State and The Bazaar with prices starting from £18.90.
