Isn't it pretty to think so?

My quote is the final line in Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises.  The Sun Also Rises was one of my favorite books as a teenager (and I had a lot to choose from -- I read like I was getting paid to read -- morning, noon and night).

I later re-read The Sun Also Rises in college in a course taken from one of my favorite professors.  I still have my dog-eared copy from that class (my project cover photo is a page from that copy), and have never liked the front cover of that edition.  The final line in the novel is so evocative of the tone of the novel, so I thought I would try my first hand lettering project using that line.  There is so much color and so many visuals in The Sun Also Rises that I think that I should be able to find plenty of inspiration.  We'll see!
