Those literary types sure are rebels. Or at least, that's what can be gathered from the amount of bookish graffiti that peppers public walls from New York City to London to Yerevan.

Flavorpill published its first collection of literary graffiti around this time last year, but since it just keeps popping up, I figured I'd kick this year off with another sweep. Below, find 20 great examples of bookish branding, from the impossibly skillful to the sweetly childish.

This post also appears on Flavorpill, an Atlantic partner site.
