Oversize Book Page Wall Art (and 18 Free Printables!)

· · · · ·

Here are six free printable oversize book page wall art quotations in two sizes and with three different background colors!

Ah, books! Where would we be without them? They are the source of all knowledge and power, and those who read can achieve anything!

Which is weird, because even though my son reads books, he can’t seem to achieve a clean room.

Okay, so maybe books are not all powerful.

But they are pretty damn powerful, you gotta admit.

Before we get into it, don’t forget to check out our other oversize book page printables!

From Women of the Word to Children’s books, we’ve got a ton of great printables that should satisfy all tastes.

Oversize Book Page Wall Art

Okay, let’s get back to the matter at hand. I have a selection of six quotations for you today – each in two sizes (16 x 20 and 24 x 36) and three colors (distressed ivory parchment, vintage aged parchment and chalkboard). That’s 36 printables, in case you wanted to be a nut-cake and get them all printed and framed.

One of these quotations – the stanza from the poem Annabel Lee by Edgar Allen Poe – is a special request from our friend, Gina. The full poem is haunting and beautiful, and like everything written by Poe, it is firmly rooted in the macabre. But taken on its own, the stanza that Gina requested is joyful and heartwarming.

Here is the full poem for you moody Goth types who liked to hang out in cemeteries listening to The Smiths when you were in high school:

Annabel Lee

By Edgar Allen Poe

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea,
But we loved with a love that was more than love—
I and my Annabel Lee—
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsmen came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in Heaven,
Went envying her and me—
Yes!—that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we—
Of many far wiser than we—
And neither the angels in Heaven above
Nor the demons down under the sea
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;

For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling—my darling—my life and my bride,
In her sepulchre there by the sea—
In her tomb by the sounding sea.

And yes, I too read Poe in high school, though never in a cemetery, as far as I can recall. I also read him in college and as an adult. He’s one of my favorite poets, and if you’ve never read his work, I encourage you to start here.

If you’d like to see one of your favorite quotations, stanzas or passages served up for the world to enjoy, please let me know in the comments section, and I will try my best to accommodate your request. (pro tip: don’t send “Be the change you want to see in the world” or any of the other tired quotations that make the regular and unceasing rounds on Facebook).

By the way, I’ve never seen anyone “be the change.” Mostly they just bitch about politics, post food pics and browbeat those who don’t subscribe to their particular worldview. Isn’t social media wonderful?

The next quotation is from Handan’s favorite author, Paulo Coelho. I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t read him yet, but in my defense, I’ve spent almost my entire adult life reading science fiction, so that didn’t leave a lot of time for lyrical Brazilian novelists. I am aware of his genius, and I do intend to dive into his works one day, when time permits. From researching this post, I can tell you he is one quotable fellow!

Handan loves that quotation, but she has lived her life by its meaning for far longer than she’s been aware of Paulo Coelho.

Mark Twain is another writer near and dear to my heart. Born Samual Langhorne Clemens and raised in Missouri, Twain spent much of his life on the Mississippi River before heading north and settling in my home state of Connecticut. He is one of the greatest American novelists, alongside Joseph Conrad. If you’ve never read Adventures of Huckleberry Finn or The Adventure of Tom Sawyer, then drop everything, order them from Amazon and get back to me when you’ve finished. Then I’ll tell you to read A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court 🙂

Twain was known for his love of science and technology, and he invested and lost a fortune betting on losing companies and ideas. When his buddy Alexander Bell invented the telephone, Twain jumped on the product and boasted that he was the first person in the world to have a residential telephone. But when his friend offered him a chance to invest in his new company, Twain declined, stating that he had been burned too many times. It was the single greatest blunder of his life and likely cost him millions (or more) in profits, as Bell Telephone would later evolve into AT&T. It’s kinda how I feel today when looking at bitcoin trading at $10,000 when I scoffed at it 4 years ago, thinking only idiots would pay $10 for an unknown and unproven cryptocurrecy. Live and learn, I guess. Still waiting for the learning…

Raise your hands, now. We’ve all experienced that first important day, but how many of us have bagged that second one?

Do you remember reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe when you were a kid? I sure do. I also remember reading it (and the entire Chronicles of Narnia series) a few more times as an adult. It’s that good! This quotation isn’t from the Narnia books, but rather an essay Lewis wrote on love and friendship entitled, The Four Loves.

Isn’t it true, though? Countless friends await you, no matter what your passion. You just need to get out there and find them!

Henry Van Dyke was an author and clergyman around the turn of the century (19th-20th). He wrote scads of short stories and some beautiful poetry that I will likely share in the future. To start, I’m sharing the following quotation. Show this one to your kids. And reflect upon it for yourself. In this modern world of false perfection parading across computer screens and televisions, it can be disheartening to try anything when Youtube can show you a thousand people that are better at everything than you. Well, nuts to them, and Youtube can go suck an egg alongside Facebook, Instagram and all of network television. Do what you want to do, no matter how bad you may be. And guess what? Unless you’re a psychiatrist, you don’t have to listen to anybody! So have fun, be your best self and don’t give a fig what’s going on around you.

We’re going Old School for the last quotation. I mean really Old School. Like back in the days when guys were know by a name and a place. I would have been Gregory of Glastonbury. Doesn’t exactly float off the tongue, does it? Kinda sounds like you’re drunk with a mouthful of marbles. Not so with Francis of Assisi – an Italian religious figure from the 11th century. Francis is best known for waltzing into Egypt in 1219 in a bid to end the Crusades by attempting to convert the Sultan. I’ll give him credit; the dude had some cojones.

So with Christmas almost upon us, the retail war machine churns furiously, and the battle cries of “ME! MINE! MORE!” can be heard on the horizon, so it’s a perfect time to disengage, take a step back and reflect upon our final quotation from Francis of Assisi.

We designed these free printable oversize book page wall art 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.

Also, if you don’t have a large format printer like the Canon i8720 Printer (prints up to 13×19 inches) and are wondering the best place to get these printables printed bigger than 8×12, we recommend trying Staples in your area or Amazon print shop. Both stores offer custom-sized prints on matte or glossy paper, and they both cost about the same. Staples also offers Engineering Prints, which are really affordable for large-format prints, but in some areas (like ours), they must be ordered from their online print shop.

Okay, enough of my yapping. Click on the button below to download today’s free printable book page wall art! They are all in the Book Page Art section of The VIP Patch.

  1. New, and happy to be here. Once I unzip the file using my ipad, am I sending it somewhere to be printed, like Office Depot or where do you guys have these sizes printed? Not sure blueprint option would work. Thanks for the help. It’s okay if you rolled your eyes. I get that a lot. ?

  2. LOVE this post! Thanks so much for a re-visit to Annabel Lee and for the background on all the authors. I read your posts as much for the prose as the projects. Thanks.

    1. Hi Sarah, sorry for the delay getting back to you. Keep an eye out next week for a printable post featuring all female authors (Including Austen and Bronte)! 😉

  3. These are fantastic! I would love to see Tennyson’s “Ulysses”, especially the part “I am part of all that I have met” and ending with “To rust unfurnished, not to shine in use”

    1. Erinanne, I’m so sorry for this late reply! That is a wonderful quote from Ulysses, and I love the sentiment about not rusting through inaction but shining with adventure! I will include this in my next book page wall art post, coming soon!

  4. Goodmorning!
    I read the following words every day from a small piece of notebook paper…
    This is the beginning of a new day.
    You have been given this day to use as you will.
    You can waste it or use it for good. What you do
    today is important because you are exchanging
    a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes,
    This day will be gone forever.
    In its place is something you left behind.
    Let it be something good.
    I would be thrilled to have this in large print to hang on my wall for all to see! I know that you must receive MANY requests for prints, but I’m hoping you’ll include this on your list.
    Thank you for your fun and inspiring website!
    Lynn

    1. Hi Lynn, that quote is one of Handan’s favorites, and it’s already on her list for the printables we’ll be issuing this fall, so keep an eye out!

  5. Doubt thou the stars are fire;
    Doubt that the sun doth move;
    Doubt truth to be a liar;
    But never doubt I love.”

    ― William Shakespeare, Hamlet

  6. Hello ?,
    I’m new to this site and to your blog. I signed up with my email and excitedly came back to be able to access the beautiful book page quotes but can’t seem to find the “download” button. I’m on my mobile device and not sure if that’s the issue but would appreciate help in being able to access the downloads.
    Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Tatika, all the download buttons are on the VIP Patch page which you can enter only by using the password that was sent to you in our Welcome email. If you don’t see our Welcome email in your inbox, can you check your junk mail box in case it landed there? Thank you!

  7. Hello! I love these wall art pieces! Poe’s Annabel Lee is one of my favorite poems. I was wondering if you could make one with the poem in its entirety? I know it’s quite long. But I just love the entire thing and I would love to showcase that on my wall. Thank you for making these beautiful pieces!!

  8. I have this saying in my office and I’m not sure who wrote it but it is ” life is not measured by the breathes we take but the moments that take our breathe away… as well as this one I’ve always liked….” have i gone mad?
    im afraid so, but let me tell you something, the best people usualy are.
    Lewis Carroll,

    1. Hi Gale, that quote has been wrongly attributed to both George Carlin and Maya Angelou. It was first written by a woman named Vicki Corona in 1989 in a book she wrote on Tahitian dance. It is an excellent quote, and I will include it in my next Book Page wall art post. Thank you!

  9. I came here for the printables but your words were so amazing and funny I got sucked into reading your page…lol. Keep up the good work, and don’t forget to keep the change…er um, I mean be the change….yeah, whatever. Thanks for the laugh!!
