Eureka! Litographs

Grab your pocketbooks ladies 'cause what I'm about to show you is not only lovely and perfect for any reader, but it's affordable! The website is called Litographs.com and they sell lithographs made of the text from the book. Thus, the term litographs. Get it? Cute and seriously cool right? Below is an example of the Moby Dick and Alice prints with a zoom in on the words.


They come in your choice of pretty muted colors (like above) or black and white. So check them out! So far I can't decide which one is my favorite and I can't wait to see what the Mary Poppins print will look like (due out next month).

  3. How cool is the Peter Pan one over the bed?! I love these! Turkeybird is a HUGE Peter Pan fan and I may just have to pick that one up for his room. He'd love it! Yay! Great find!

    1. O I do love the Emma one too! Sooooo pretty. And you know my love for silhouettes.

  5. I saw some similar ones on pinterest, they were black and white text in silhouettes of the characters.

    Also, I think you would like Will from the Pursuit of Lucy Banning. He was soooo sweet and such a good man :))

    1. Interesting.
      I wonder how they would compare.

    1. You have one? Too cool! :) *high five*
      So where does it hang? Living room? Office?

      Thank you! :D Good question. I think when she's too big for a stroller (in a few years) I will upgrade it. Does your son still use his stroller? If not how long did he?

  21. Huh. I would imagine it would've been pretty hard to get all the swirls right, with the writing and all that. Lots of hard work and talent! I hope they continue to do what they do and hopefully we'll get to see some more fav classics!

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is so creative. I'm off to peruse the site and see which ones I'd want. Thanks for the heads up.

  23. PERFECT! I just repainted my home library a light purple color, and I wanted book related artwork to hang on the walls! Thank you so much Juju. I hope the prices to break my bank. LOL

  25. Hi Juju! So nice to meet you. This is so cool. Love this idea. I am totally going over to check the website out. It reminds me of the photomosaics. I went nuts over those and I have Starry Night and Irises by Van Gogh in photomosaics framed and in my bedroom. they are gorgeous. These would be a nice addition.

  32. I want ALL OF THESE. Okay, maybe not every single one, but almost all. These are so cool! I've seen something similar on another website, but they aren't nearly as pretty as these. I really love the Alice, Emma, Harry Potter and Secret Garden posters. Maybe I can convince my husband that they are perfect for our new office?! One can hope!
