Wear a book

Haven't you always wished you could wear your favourite book and show-off your literary savviness? Well, now you can! Out of Print Clothing does exactly that. They sell iconic book covers (some out of print, hence the name) printed on soft, vintage-looking t-shirts. Plus, you can actually feel extra good about your purchase! From their mission statement:

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.

They have both men and women's styles, and the covers include, besides the ones pictured here, such titles as One flew over the cuckoo's nest, Invisible Man, Atlas Shrugged, Naked Lunch and more.

Pretty neat, right? Which one would you choose? It's hard, but I think I'd go with my favourite book, Lolita. Such a great cover!

Until next time, drink lots of fluids.
