"A reader lives a thousand lives."George R.R. Martin
The Story Behind This Tile
“Once a reading of a book is under way, and we sink into the experience, a performance of a sort begins… We perform a book - we perform a reading of a book. We perform a book, and we attend the performance… It is not that our narratives necessarily tell us something true about the world (though they might), but rather that the practice of reading feels like, and is like, consciousness itself: imperfect; partial; hazy; co-creative… As readers, we are both the conductor and the orchestra, as well as the audience.” -Peter Mendelsund, What We See When We Read
Details & Dimensions

Care & Use
CARE: Enamel artwork is best polished with household glass cleaner and a soft cloth.
DISPLAYING: These delicate yet durable artworks are made to last, resist fading, shine under light, and fire up a meaningful conversation. Spiritiles can stand up on a flat surface or hang on a prized wall. They can stand alone, but love company. Each piece is sized the same to mix and match for a collection that tells your story.
HOW TO HANG: Drywall screws work great! When affixing the screw, leave a ¼" lip to rest the frame's hollow on the screw head. The art will sit securely and flush with the wall. When hanging multiple pieces, the ideal spacing between screws is 7¼" horizontal and 10½" vertical.
