Week Link

I picked this link up off my Nashville BFF’s wall on Facebook. It’s a cool website where you can get T-shirts with vintage book covers printed on them. I just had to pass it on to you book lovers out there. I’ve already picked up a couple of Christmas presents. And yes, one of them happens to be for me. The link takes you to their selection of men’s T-shirts, but there are women’s and children’s, too.

Out of Print’s mission is stated on their home page:

“Out of Print celebrates the world’s great stories through fashion. Our shirts feature iconic and often out of print book covers. Some are classics, some are just curious enough to make great t-shirts, but all are striking works of art.

We work closely with artists, authors and publishers to license the content that ends up in our collections. Each shirt is treated to feel soft and worn like a well-read book.

In addition to spreading the joy of reading through our tees, we acknowledge that many parts of the world don't have access to books at all. We are working to change that. For each shirt we sell, one book is donated to a community in need through our partner Books For Africa.”
