Print is the Word: Literary Inspired Art & Giveaway (CLOSED)

Like many book-lovers out there, I love discovering new bookish products and designs to fill my home. I recently redecorated my room, which gave me the perfect opportunity to get creative and search out some gorgeous literary inspiration.

This research made me fall in love with some of the most stunning literary-inspired art and quote prints out there. As I have neither the money nor space to buy them all, I've picked out a few of my favourites to share with you!

The Secret Garden

Simple but striking, this super stylish quote print features the wise words of author Frances Hodgson Burnett - "If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden".

Ideal for those who love gardening as much as books, this print is the perfect addition to a minimalist design.

Alice in Wonderland

Buy it here
There are many Alice in Wonderland inspired prints and pieces of artwork out there, but this is one of the best I've seen. It's eye-catching and bold, with a special kind of charm all of its own.

It's vintage and whimsical, printed directly onto an original page from the book. No two prints are exactly the same, meaning that each one is completely unique!

Peter Pan

Buy it here
I have a major crush on Bookishly products (so much so that I - unsuccessfully - applied to work there a while back) and this Peter Pan canvas is one of the best.

The print features the famous quote, "second to the right, and straight on till morning," against a gorgeous backdrop of the starry night sky.

Edgar Allan Poe

Print, Art, Inspiration, Books, Literary, Bookish, Edgar Allan Poe, Quote, Not on the High Street, Fable and Black, The Writing Greyhound, Lorna Holland

Buy it here
This spooky Halloween themed quote is taken from Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven and Other Poems.

It's quirky and original, offering a more modern option than some of my other picks. Its bold colours and comic graphics are sure to make it stand out, wherever you chose to put it.

Winnie the Pooh

Print, Art, Literary, Winnie the Pooh, Bookish

Buy it here
Last but not least, we come to Winnie the Pooh. This classic and much-loved children's character is the perfect addition to the home, and this stunning print is one of my favourites. Printed directly onto a vintage page from a Pooh book, this quote reads, "I knew when I met you an adventure was going to happen". It's sweet, touching, and would make the ideal gift.

If you love this print as much as I do, you're in luck, as I have one to give away to one lucky reader. Simply enter via the Rafflecopter widget below for your chance to win!
