Hey everyone! (Scroll down before reading this long paragraph for an example of what this intro is about.) I decided I would try something, sort of like a little art project but using images from We Heart It and your own favorite book quotes. Send me your favorite quote from any book, maybe one that you find particularly beautiful, and send me a post card with that quote. I will find images that I feel represent the quote or show the quote visually and make a little collage. Preferably I would like your quote to be not too long but more than a single sentence (3-5 sentences works best). To give you an example of my little projects I made a collage using my own favorite quote. Send me yours!

Excerpt from "Cannery Row" by John Steinbeck

"Henri the painter was not French and his name was not Henri.

Henri had so steeped himself in stories of the Left Bank in Paris that he lived there although he had never been there.

art, aesthetic, and book image

Feverishly he followed in periodicals the Dadaist movements and schisms, the strangely feminine jealousies and religiousness, the obscurantisms of the forming and breaking schools.

art, paint, and painting image

One season he threw out perspective. Another year he abandoned red, even as the mother of purple. Finally he gave up paint entirely.

It was not known whether Henri was a good painter or not for he threw himself so violently into movements that he had little time left for painting of any kind."

—John Steinbeck, Cannery Row

Now send me your own quotes and I will make a similar collage for you!
