The Bookish Minimalist Prints of Ryan McArthur

live story to tell

I sure do love bookish art, and the work of Toronto-based graphic artist Ryan McArthur is absolutely fantastic. Ryan creates some truly beautiful minimalist prints, using quotes from famous literary figures with simple, clean black and white images.

He also seems to love Oscar Wilde, which scores him bonus points in my book. Check out some of his work below.

Want to snag a print? They’ll run you a little under $20 a piece. He’s also got t-shirts and greeting cards in the shop.

Ah, and speaking of, you check out Ryan’s Etsy shop here, and visit his official website at designdifferent.ca. Or follow him on Twitter and Facebook to check out his process and see where his art is being displayed.
