Well Read

It was a love story for the ages. Bookmark the newlyweds' first year together or a couple's anniversary with this literary art that celebrates their journey together. Mounted in a complementary dark frame, the piece features a classic cover of Homer's The Odyssey and a customizable "page" that pairs a poignant quote from the book and clever personalized details. Include the couple's names, a "chapter" celebrating their significant number-"1" for the newlyweds, "50" for a golden milestone, for example--and the memorable date. Accented with brilliant metallic detail, this keepsake by Patricia Carlin will remind them that life with each other will always be a page turner. Made in New Jersey.

“I like to keep things pretty simple. I focus on warmth, humor, and emotion.”

Patricia Carlin believes that a small sketch has the power to tell a story without language. She started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business, so Patricia designed and wrote copy for several products for the new venture. Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me, paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says.

We chatted with Patricia about how she brings her charming illustrations to life (and got a look at her adorable studio cat). Read the Q&A on our blog.

    I purchased this as a unique 50th wedding anniversary gift for two very discerning friends. They loved the concept, the message, and the general appearance of the piece. They especially appreciated the fine workmanship of the construction and told me that it would be displayed in a prominent place in their home. You won't go wrong by ordering a creation of this talented artist.

      I truly am amazed at the design, the quality, the colors, the framing. I bought this for a friends 50th anniversary being held on 08-14. So excited it came in on time. The gold in the book binding is what I am using to represent the 50th color. I never write reviews but the box was just delivered to my home and the art piece was professionally protected and framed. As we say in MA --- it is wicked awesome.... I would not hesitate to purchasing anything by this artist....
