INTRODUCING: WANDERLUST

What the press is saying ...

"Witty and elegant"

– Los Angeles Times

"...starkly designed and deftly capture the spirit of the writer's message in a few words."

– Huff Post Culture

"The rather smart Evan Robertson has created a set of posters that combine iconic author quotes with genius design work. If you don't want at least two of these hanging on your wall then we need to have a serious chat."

– Short List

"The prints are filled with visual puns and insider nudges that will have the word nerds among you punning with delight."

– Flavorwire
