The Literophile Project is the beginning of a new curriculum. I am creating a series of illustrated books designed to make the big ideas of the Great Books (think Plato, Aristotle, Emerson, Augustine, and their ilk) more accessible to a younger audience. I’m passionate about knowledge and education, and think it would be a wonderful thing if kids could go into high school and college with a foundation understanding of these primary texts. It’s important to raise up critical thinkers, a generation of philosopher kings, who will be able to dive all the deeper into these texts when they reach higher education.
In the meantime, I’m sharing some hand-lettered quotes from some of the world’s greatest books, as well as a few simply about the joy of reading. Hope you enjoy 🙂
