Fantasy book frame quote

A few weeks ago I saw the following tweet by Bo Marit. I really liked how the quote and the symbol reference stand out in front of the text in the frame. Since, I liked them so much I decided to be a copy-cat. However, I added also another frame with a reference to Game of Thrones.

The font that she uses for the quote is called Darleston. It is a really elegant calligraphic font created by Youssef Habchi. For the book page text I used Garamond, a standard font on most computers. I chose this font because it has an oldish style to it. While this could easily be created in Photoshop or any other graphics editor, I simply recreated it with Microsoft Word, which is maybe even easier! I simply created a two column layout, added two textboxes for the quotes and the symbol image. You can download the word file here (note: you will need the fonts Darleston and Garamond) or a pdf file here. As an frame I would recommend a simple wooden frame as Bo Marit uses, I think it gives adds elegance and makes it look more humble. Furthermore, I would not use regular A4 paper to print this on. I searched for the same type of paper you often see used in books. Most likely you will find this type of paper in your local hobby store.

Finally, my result:

Three frames with a book page and quote in front as reference.

I plan the hang the Harry Potter frame near to a light switch, the Lord of the Rings frame near to the clock and the Game of Thrones frame near to the thermostat.
