The last printable is a quote inspired by the legendary JRR Tolkien. For those who may not know his name, he authored The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. He was a master linguist and was fluent in over 100 languages and dialects. What Beethoven and Mozart were to music, Tolkien was to language. The original quote is from The Lord of the Rings:
Frodo was now safe in the Last Homely House east of the Sea. That house was, as Bilbo had long ago reported, ‘a perfect house, whether you like food or sleep, or story-telling or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all.’ Merely to be there was a cure for weariness, fear and sadness.
I’ve seen a lot of wall art with a shortened version of the quote:
That house was…‘a perfect house, whether you like food or sleep, or story-telling or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all.’ Merely to be there was a cure for weariness, fear and sadness.
I find the ellipses (…) clunky, and I think the quote in its original form doesn’t make a lot of sense for us to hang in our own house. Who’s house are we talking about? The neighbor’s? So I paraphrased it just a bit and made it personal:
I think that’s much better!
Okay, enough of my blathering. I promised you book page wall art printables, and printables you shall have!
Just one last note: we designed these free book page wall art printables in three colors and to fit into a 16×20 inch frame or a 24×36 poster frame, though you may scale them up or down as necessary. 24×36 inch scales down easily to 20×30 / 16×24 / 12×18 / 8×12 / 4×6 inches, and 16×20 inch scales down to 12×15 / 8×10 / 4×5 inches with no problems. If you need help with scaling down these printables so you can print them using your home printer, then check out our “How To Easily Resize Pictures” post.
