In need of a little motivational inspiration? Some words to live by? Here are a few favourites, some of which adorn my home and office.
Well, when I say adorn, I mean they are stashed semi-safely waiting their turn to be framed. For some reason I like them to be framed well enough to last eternity. Which means they have to wait a long time because that costs serious money.
Money which I might have had more of if I had not followed the advice in pick number one…
It’s the words that get me on this one, me not being such a fan of the silver on coloured stock, but hey, Do what you love is another Douglas Wilson gem. He really is a very insightful guy and he loves his letterpress so much it has its own flickr steam.
Above: Frank Chimero‘s shop is currently closed, but until it reopens you can trawl his website to see more of his illustration style, not to mention his typographical words of wisdom.
And finally, yes I know the “Keep Calm” theme is everywhere now, but I Don’t Care. I bought mine about a year and a half ago from the ever wonderful Victoria of sfgirlbybay fame and I think no matter what life throws at you these really are some words to get you through. If you think so too you can pick yourself up one from her Etsy shop.
Of course for OTHER words of wisdom there is our Life Tips range. Words to live by if ever there were any…
