Classic literature meets contemporary colloquialism in this set of literary postcards. On the face of each, a quote appears from Jane Austen or Charlotte Brontë, Oscar Wilde or F. Scott Fitzgerald, written out across a graphical symbol that illuminates an alternative reading through the acronym-peppered code of the text message; as Romeo rejects the world to join Juliet in death, for example, the hidden message "OMG!" emerges, while as Elizabeth Bennett politely spurns Mr. Darcy, the text highlights reveal a "hell no!" in her response. The 6 × 4¼ postcards are bound as a pad of 24 (2 each of 12 quotes) inside a laminated hardcover "book."
