BBH: Bookish Art

Todays Book Blogger Hop question comes from Penelope @ The Reading Devil who asks:

Do you have any bookish posters or artwork on your walls? 

I don’t, and I don’t really know why. I have a fair amount of artwork on the walls—we are big fans of Jackson Pollock and Vasily Kandinsky here at Casa 52–but nothing at all that is book-inspired. I’d say that I have to get on that, but I probably won’t. There’s not a ton of room on the walls at this point, and I like the art we have. Also, that stuff is frequently expensive, and, you know, fixed income.

I do love looking at art from books,though—if you have any, leave me a picture in the comments!

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book-related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog

  1. I have a poster with pictures of classic novels covered with a silver substance, like a lotto ticket. When I read a book I scratch the foil off of the poster covering it. I used to have to two of these posters but my dog kept scratching at the door and ripped one of them to shreds.

  2. I was going to say no; but then I remembered I do have a couple from the Honor Harrington sci-fi series – a letter sized picture of the Royal Manticoran Navy’s crest/logo, and a poster showing the major classes of warships.

    But now I thinking about some of the classic fantasy cover art and wondering what it’d cost to get a few of those pictures in poster form…

  3. I love bookish art but don’t have a lot. I am fond of Ted Nasmith’s art based on the Lord of the Rings, especially rivendell- and I did buy a piece of art based on an old Alistair MacLean book Ice Station Zebra a few years agone.

  4. Great post! I’ve never specifically bought bookish/book-related art before but I have received a few gorgeous works from special edition boxes that I got and I ended up framing and hanging them up in my room last year. But like you said, space is getting limited and it’s also pricey so I don’t reckon I’d go out and buy anything unless it was an absolute favourite book or artist and “one of a kind”!
