Life expands or contracts in direct proportion to one’s courage – Anaïs Nin quotation on repurposed (broken dictionary) book page art print




“Life expands or contracts in direct proportion to one’s courage.”

This quotation is attributed to essayist and memoirist, Anaïs Nin.

Like all of Junket’s page art, this quotation has been carefully printed on a simple page from a broken dictionary (we don’t turn books into art unless they’re already broken).

The print you receive will be similar to the one pictured in the first image here, with slightly different background text (no two are alike). Page dimensions are roughly 8.5″ x 11.5”, and there’s a bit of wiggle room if you should need to trim it down to a smaller frame or mat. Subsequent photos are intended to share similar products, plus ways in which you might consider putting this item to use.

Junket’s mission is to help make it fun – and easy – to make ecologically sensitive purchasing decisions. Anything you find on our Etsy site, in our Minneapolis shop, or on is secondhand itself, or has been made using secondhand materials.

Shipping is free within the United States. If you live outside the US and wish to purchase multiple prints, please contact us for reduced shipping (multiple book pages will easily ship for the price of one page). Thank you!
