How Books Work

I love this image:


(Edited for NSFW content. The original (NSFW) can be found at http://i.imgur.com/QNe3wmg.jpg.)

edit: Thanks to avantman42 and pdurrant for shedding some light on the original creator. Much appreciated. I'll leave my original request below for posterity.

---

I'm not really sure where it originates from, searching online it's most often associated with demotivation.us, but it doesn't seem likely to have come from them. It's not very demotivational.

If you know who the original creator is, please share that and give them credit.

I like the picture, but I think that with all the dystopias, books sometimes do the opposite.

I guess dystopias add a bit of excitement for the protagonist, but I'd rather have my head in the clouds to see the sunshine on the other side since there is far too much to fret about down here on Earth.

I just wish the image had avoided the profanity. Yeah, I know, it's there for realism--but it makes the image unacceptable to many people, including me.

The language help make the point the picture is trying to make.

I know that. But it's offensive, and the point is made without it. Why deliberately offend?

And from a commercial standpoint, assuming a print/poster is for sale, why limit sales by including the profanity?

Agreed. I don't understand the inclusion of profanity in the image. It doesn't make sense to me and in my opinion not applicable to the general concept of the image. Perhaps I'm missing something?

Thanks for the new images; I really like them both.

Did we ever find out who owns the copyright?

It appears that the original was by Anastasia Gorbunov, and the original text was "Reading isn’t dangerous. Not reading is.":
