Take a Written Snapshot: New Feature!


A new feature! I’ve been having so much fun making various different graphics using Canva, and I just had to come up with a feature that would let me make them for the blog! This is similar to a feature I tried to start years ago, Graphics Day, but hopefully it’ll go better than that, and it’s much focused – rather than any graphics, I’m going to focus on making graphics of quotes I love from books I love as well! There are plenty of blogs that have various graphics, including graphics of book quotes, so this isn’t a wholely unique feature, but I don’t care, because you can never have too many beautiful bookish graphics!

For this inaugural post, I made eight graphics of quotes from five different books (two are from a series, so it’s like two quotes for each book). Feel free to do whatever you want with them, but I hope you’ll credit me! I put my name and website on them, but I’m not totally naive – I know that people can easily crop my name out of them if they want, so please don’t do that!

Oh, and they aren’t full-sized – these are all 300×300 pixels, but the full size is 800×800. You should be able to see them full-size if you save them or drag them to another window, I think.

What do you think of this new feature? Do you like these graphics/would use them for something? And, if you like them, do you have any requests for future graphics? I can’t promise that I’ll do them all – I’m much more likely to make graphics for books/quotes I like, so feel free to check out my Goodreads account or check out my reviews if you aren’t sure if I’ve read/liked something!

  1. I love your new feature, I’m a huge fan of book quotes anyway, and your choices are really good. I’ve not read all the books, but I’ve read a couple, and you’ve really managed to capture the feeling of the books and tease the story without giving anything away.

    I hope you carry on with this, because it is a really fun idea.

    1. Thank you, that’s so great to hear! I really just looked at the various Goodreads quotes for some books and chose some that stood out to me or that I really liked, so I’m glad to hear that you think that I captured their essence – it sounds a lot fancier than “I thought this quote was cool, so I made a graphic of it.” ;D
