Anaïs Nin on Love, Hand-Lettered by Debbie Millman

“Anxiety is love’s greatest killer… It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you.”
Revered as one of the most dedicated diarists in literary history, Anaïs Ninhas given us a wealth of poetic and poignant meditations on life and the human condition. This first installment in an ongoing collaboration with creative polymath Debbie Millman — whose own poetic and poignant meditations you might recall from recent Literary Jukebox editions — captures one of Nin’s most timeless insights on love, culled from her manyvolumes of diaries and her love letters with Henry Miller. Drawn in Debbie’s singular style of artful lettering, the artwork is available on Etsy with proceeds benefiting A Room of Her Own, a foundation supporting women writers and artists. Enjoy:
