Rilke: Darkness Quote Print


Printed on the Historic Roycroft Campus on an antique printing press by Roycroft Campus Resident Printer, Necole Witcher.

Quote reads: ‘You darkness, that I come from, I love you more than all the fires that fence the world, for the fire makes a circle of light for everyone, and then no one outside learns of you. But the darkness pulls in everything; shapes and fires, animals and myself, how easily it gathers them! – powers and people – and it is possible a great energy is moving near me. I have faith in nights.’ – Rainer Maria Rilke

Measures 7 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Printed on heavy cardstock. Green rectangular coloration may vary.
