Description

This is hand typed print of a Hunter S. Thompson quote regarding life and how he believed you should live it, 'What a Ride!' can be found within Thompson's personal letters which he produced over a 12 year period during 1955-1967. A powerful and inspirational quote which poses questions for the western world, its approach to life and the physical body through which we experience our journey through it.

This quote is produced by hand on a vintage 1963 Olivetti typewriter onto white, 230 gsm acid-free, textured watercolour paper.

The paper measures 7 x 5.5 inches (178 x 135mm).

This item would be perfect as a gift for the wonderful friends or family in your life, great as a gift for yourself as a reminder not to take yourself too seriously, for scrapbooking, cardmaking or creating meaningful gifts for the people you love. Each quote is typed by hand which produces a unique copy every time a key is struck, the imperfections and different tones of ink are a reminder that these prints are produced on a machine worked by the muscle and mood of a human hand in a moment of time.

Life should not be
a journey to the grave
with the intention
of arriving safely
an a pretty
and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in
broadside
in a cloud of smoke,
thoroughly used up,
totally worn out,
and loudly proclaiming
"Wow! What a Ride!"

After downloading your purchased designs from Quotype, the files will be stored on your computer for you to print at home, with a local print shop or via an online printing service.

The final standard of your print depends upon the quality of the products used for its reproduction. I would recommend using a regular to heavyweight paper stock (150-250 gsm) for printing, with excellent quality inks. The choice of paper finish can be to your personal taste.
