Anger is fear’s bodyguard

“Anger is fear’s bodyguard.” One of my favorite things about Insta is getting a chance to see so many other folks’ lettering work. I’ve especially liked the boldness of @tarwane. So when I was thinking back on the truth of this line from Celeste Ng’s Little Fires Everywhere, I knew his style would be perfect to play with her words.⁣ By the way, this is a great book. The plot is a well-crafted mystery, but it feels like it’s even more about relationships and family and perfection and growing up. Have you read Little Fires Everywhere? What did you think?
