Diana Gabaldon's Outlander captivates the reader from the very beginning with it's famous prologue: "People disappear all the time. Ask any policeman. Better yet ask a journalist. Disappearances are bread-and-butter to journalists. Young girls run away from home. Young children stray away from their parents and are never seen again. Housewives reach the end of their tether and take the grocery money and a taxi to the station. International financiers change their names and vanish into the smoke of imported cigars. Many of the lost will be found, eventually, dead or alive. Disappearances, after all, have explanations. Usually. " to the final passage of the book: "I have a gift for you too, " I said suddenly to Jamie. He turned toward me and his hand slide, large and sure, over the plane of my still-flat stomach. "Have you, now? " he said. And the world was all around us, new with possibility."
What attracted me to her work were the beautifully written passages. In the daily life of a reader, the book series shows how small changes in our daily lives may open us up to endless possibilities in the future. It all depends on you, that's the magic of these books. They transport the reader through time offering them bits of history, adventure and love trying to overcoming all obstacles in its path. I enjoyed the books and the series created by Starz so much that I mingled my love for Outlander with my profession as a graphic designer.
By mixing Art & Design, I began to create artistic edits based on the world of Outlander, using released photos from Starz and quotes from Diana Gabaldon as inspiration. When friends and family enjoyed them, They encouraged me to created Outlander Love & Art Facebook page, as a tribute to Diana Gabaldon's work and the magical world of Outlander. If you enjoy my page, you may also follow us on Twitter at @Outlatins_art . Always a daily challenge creating my edits and melding them with some of our most favorite Diana Gabaldon's quotes, it's been worthwhile sharing them with others who enjoy Diana's work as much as I do and meeting fans from all over the world.
