This is the coolest idea. Imagine wearing the cover of your favorite book on a t-shirt. This reminds me a bit of Fahrenheit 411, each person memorizes each book, and you become the book. Now you can become your favorite book. Out of Print is bringing some of your favorite books in tee form for all to wear and spread the word of bibliophiles.
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.
How we read is changing as we move further into the digital age. It’s unclear what the role of the book cover will be in this new era, but we feel it’s more important than ever to reflect on our own individual experiences with great literary art before it’s forever changed.
What’s your story? Wear it proud.
