“If you want to be happy, be.”
I’d like to thank Google Doodle for alerting me to the fact that today is Leo Tolstoy’s 186th Birthday. If you missed the doodle, you can see it here and read the explanation behind it directly from the artist here. (“I hope the doodle will inspire viewers to discover and revisit these scenes in the way Tolstoy intended: through reading and rereading his timeless narratives.”)
I’d also like to thank this doodle for reminding me that I have yet to read any Tolstoy and I really should get on that.
So in honour of Tolstoy’s birthday, here’s a collection of some pretty great Etsy finds inspired by the famous author.
