I’ve always made covers for my school binders and notebooks covered with quotes from books and TV shows. In the last two years, with the help of Corel Draw X4, things have gotten a little out of hand.
Here are two of my binder covers, covered with quotes from my favorite books. Each of these took about 12 hours each, including finding the quotes and putting everything together. I made one last year, and one this year.
The quotes shouldn’t have any major spoilers, but check the list of books quoted before reading if you’re worried. I apologize for the first of the binder covers; sometimes the quote got broken up into a few different lines, and then I used the space between the lines to fit more quotes. This makes it somewhat hard to read some of the quotes if you don’t know them to begin with.
Most of these quotes aren’t funny or emotional out of context. If you recognize the quotes, then these covers will make you happy. If not, please just stand in awe of how many words and fonts I crammed onto a piece of paper. 🙂
I got my fonts either pre-installed from my laptop or off of dafont.com. I don’t intend to infringe on any copyrights. Vast apologies if I step on anyone’s toes.

This year I added color for emphasis:
*I blacked out spoiler lines. There weren’t any this bad in last year’s, but this one featured a couple lines that had major plot reveals.
