Literary Genius


In the ever-changing world of grown-ups, the words from classic children’s books are steadfast sources of inspiration. Pin up a pick-me-up quote from this new collaboration between Design Mom and artist Emily McDowell. Design Mom contributor and children’s book editor Carter Higgins picks her favorite quotes from classic children’s books such as “The Secret Garden” and “Little Women” and McDowell beautifully renders them in digital illustrations with a hand-drawn quality.

The duo will be announcing new prints on Fridays; today’s is a dreamy quote from Peter Pan. Prints are available through McDowell’s Etsy shop in a 5X7 size for $16, 8X10 for $22, and 11X14 for $30.
