Adopting the theory that the last lines in a novel hold the most weight, the End Quote Project by Luminous Particular is turning the last lines from famous lit into cool graphic art. With 120 titles already created 鈥 from The Sun Also Rises to The Princess Bride to Into the Wild 鈥 people across the web just can鈥檛 get enough of this awesome literary find from the creative mind of Valerie Perreault.


鈥淸It鈥檚] my secret,鈥 says Valerie. 鈥淚 like to read the last page of a new book before I open the front cover. I know. I can鈥檛 help it.鈥 A guilty pleasure that started when she was just nine years old, Valerie is completely open about this literary taboo. 鈥淭he closing lines of a good book are perfect poetry to me. And when the journey is over, the beast panting, I like to return to those last lines for a sort of re-sparking,鈥 she says. We totally get how powerful closing lines can be after rereading the closing of Into the Wild.

Although her other work has been featured on HBO鈥檚 Girls and Buzzfeed, Valerie considers the End Quote Project her baby. 鈥淢oney is nice, of course, but I鈥檓 always excited to see which quote [my customers] choose,鈥 Valerie confesses. 鈥淚t鈥檚 great when I get a buyer named SKULLCRUSHER109 and he orders the Little Women poster.鈥
