If there’s one thing bibliophiles can’t get enough of, it’s literary posters, and Obvious State’s minimalist offerings make the case for covering an entire wall with them. Drawing inspiration from such beloved authors as Hemingway, Salinger, and Dostoevsky, the posters feature simplistic yet metaphoric (in a non-cloying way) black and white designs that reflect the literary quote displayed across the page. And at just $24 a poster, you can totally make your dream of Sylvia Plath and Virginia Woolf hanging out together come true.

13×19 posters available for $24 each at Obvious State’s Etsy shop
