Underlined Book Quotes Become Clever Illustrations Bookworm or not, you can't help but enjoy these black and white illustrations of literary quotes by Evan Robertson.

Theo Altenberg Theo Altenberg has been active in so many artistic genres that it seems like a silly simplification to call him a painter. There is an intriguing drama in his yummy olis-on-cardboard that hints to his other talents.
