The Literary Shopaholic: The Writing’s On The Wall

‘The Literary Shopaholic’ is a sporadic feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I highlight some of my favourite literary-themed items. From bookmarks to bookends, purses to posters and everything in between, I’ve selected a few things that will be at the very top of my shopping list this season!

Regular readers of Pop! Goes The Reader will know that one of my most consistent (and popular) features is The Writing’s On The Wall, in which I use some of my favourite passages from books I’ve adored as the basis for wallpapers for your computer, phone, or tablet. This got me thinking (Always a dangerous prospect, I know). What were other people creating in honour of their favourite literary landmarks? Today’s post is the direct result of that question, a combination of two of my favourite features, and a project that is very close to my heart. There are few things more important to me than supporting local and/or independent artistry, and it’s my honour today to share even a small sampling of some of the beautiful works of art I happened upon while on this really fun journey of discovery. Best of all, each and every one of these pieces are available for purchase and I’ve included both a link to the individual piece as well as to the artist’s shop for ease of use. So break out those wallets and warm up those credit cards – With any luck one of these prints might just be the perfect match for you!

  1. ^^ YESSS. Seriously, I wish I weren’t in temporary housing and broke and unemployed. I love the cactus one so much, and I have a ton of cacti because I’m cool. I also really like the reading gals one up at the top, feel like that would make EXCELLENT wrapping paper!

  2. JEN STOP. (ahahaha I just noticed how all of the comments so far have started in all caps)

    I love bookish art. 🙂 I actually shared the Dahl print last year and own another one of his quotes (And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.) that my mom had custom-made for me for Christmas.

    This actually came at a perfect time: Matt and I have been house hunting and that’s gotten my creative juices flowing. My pinterest boards have been exploding with ideas for projects, decor, color schemes, and here and there I’ve been buying cute little kitschy things for MY room (in our current out we each have a room set aside for ourselves – Matt’s got his man cave/gaming room and I have my reading nook). So, yeah, don’t be at all surprised if a bunch of these come home with me. 🙂

    The Gatsby ones make my heart beat a little faster and I’m looooving the Books are Fucking Epic print! <3
