Movie love quotes print by Karin Akesson


Looking to add a touch of Hollywood to your seduction technique? Then this Movie love quotes print by Karin Akesson could be your new best friend.

The print draws together some of the most famous love quotes from a wide range of films like Casablanca and Gone with the Wind, as well as some of slightly less classic status (Notting Hill?). The quotes have been printed in a paler black ink to add something of a vintage feel to the print. Use the lines for your own chat-up line inspiration, or just to test your own cinematic knowledge.

It's an edition of 500 prints, the price being only £25.
