Vintage Wisdom

"Wine is sunlight, held together by water." Galileo's poetic tribute to the wonders of wine joins a host of literary quotations showcased on bottles, goblets, and lush bunches of grapes. The style and shape of the vessels reflect the era in which each wine-loving author wrote their vintage lines: An Elizabethan chalice holds verse from Shakespeare, while a slender, stemmed glass is inscribed with words by Baudelaire. Reading the romantic ways the ancient beverage has inspired us through the centuries is sure to inspire some satisfying sipping. Designed by Tim and Aurelia Sanders in Madison, Wisconsin.

Tim and Aurelia Sanders think people should enjoy more mirth. They mixed together data visualization, writing, and humor to create artwork that was smart as well as funny. Their process begins with a mix of ideas and sketches, which are gradually refined through research, experimentation, and "occasional hair pulling." Timothy employs his background as an art director and playwright, and Aurelia keeps their projects well edited and on track. "It's a great pleasure to see a passerby stop at one of our posters, lean in close, and start to laugh," they say.

Have a peek at Tim's sketchbooks to see how his thought process works as he creates new posters.

Comments about UncommonGoods Wine in Literature Chart:

As soon as I saw this I knew Ihad to get it for my daughter. We share a love of wine and books. She loved it, she's in the process of picking her frame for it now. It's really fun to read the quotes and I think it will be a great conversation piece when she entertains. The colors are also very pretty and I can't wait to see it framed.
