ASPIRE’s Desires: Art from the Full Texts of Books


At first glance it’s a piece of art depicting an iconic scene from a literary work, but look closer and it’s actually composed of the entire full text of that work. We love them. But what is most awesome about these prints from Litographs is the sheer quantity of the selection. There is a veritable (or perhaps an actual) library of Litographs to choose from, so that no matter what your favorite book may be – even if it seems obscure like Darwin’s Origin of Species On the Origin of Species or Optiks by Issac Newton – you may be able to display it in stylish entirety. You can even choose custom colors and sizes.


The prints are also available as totes and T-shirts, but we think they are especially elegant framed.

In the writing business we often tell people, “this isn’t War and Peace”. We mean, ‘don’t kill yourself composing this thing because it doesn’t have to be an epic tome, nor stand the ages’. Below is a print that actually is War and Peace.

Here are Leaves of Grass, Les Mis, and Siddartha, too:
