I've been talking about getting a few things to hang up on my walls for nearly a year, but nothing I saw seemed good enough.
Until a few weeks ago…
I was searching for cool and unique bookish things on Etsy when I stumbled upon Blue Poppy Gallery. Blue Poppy Gallery acquires pages from old books and dictionaries and then prints awesome, creative, and often bookish quotes and/or images overtop of the (8.5 X 11) pages.
There were three prints that I absolutely loved:
Go Confidently in the Direction of your dreams - live the life you've imagined
Becoming fearless isn't the point. That's impossible. It's learning how to control your fear. And how to be free from it. That's the point.
I am selfish. I am brave.
In addition to these three prints, I also placed a custom order. Creating a custom order was really easy and the owner of Blue Poppy Gallery was very helpful and friendly. If the owner likes the quote you choose and would sell it in her store, she does not charge extra for the custom order (this was the case for me - $7.95). If the quote you choose is something personal (that she wouldn't sell in her store), the custom order is $12.
Also, after I gave her the quote I wanted for the print and paid for your order, she promptly sent over two typography options (the same day)! I liked the first option she created for me. However, she said if I didn't like either option she could makes changes (no charge, of course).
Books are easily destroyed, but words will live as long as people remember them.
My writing space:
The Blue Poppy Gallery was offering a buy three get the forth print free sale so I only ordered four. However, there are several more prints I would love to display on my walls. Here are some that I think you would all like as well:
It's when you're acting selflessly that you are your bravest.
I cannot live without books
Fear doesn't shut you down. It wakes you up.
We believe in ordinary acts of bravery - in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another.
I have a theory that selflessness & bravery aren't that different.
There are over 260 options, all only $7.95! (frames not included)
Plus, you can easily request a custom and choose whatever quote you want.
If you are looking for wall art, I highly recommend the Blue Poppy Gallery.
Do you have any bookish art on display?
