Kafka and the Fishes

When I read Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer a while ago I found a quote I really liked. It was by Franz Kafka and it's something he said when visiting the Berlin aquarium after becoming a vegetarian. I decided to use it for an illustration.



The font I used was made by Matt Lyon.

Really lovely!!

I love Safran Foer too, would you recommend the book? (I do not eat fishes either)

skönt! :)

Mydeerfriend: Thank you!

I would absolutely recommend the book, it's great! It's non-fiction so it's quite different from his other work but it's very interesting and well written.
