ABOUT THIS CARVING
Full Inscription: Books are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance of generations and nations. - Thoreau
Origins: We used an old Roman stone-carving letter style befitting the formality and timelessness of Thoreau's thought and coupled it with a torch, the historic symbol of enlightenment from ancient Greek mythology and the story of Prometheus.
While our first customer for this carving was an author, to date, every librarian who has viewed this piece has wanted one on display in their library. Of course, we believe they have a superb perspective — and excellent taste! It will look great in virtually any library: home, business or public - or on display wherever you choose to do your reading or writing.
Source: Walden, 1854
