Shirts with a book cover or favorite quote are pretty cool. But you get even more bibliophile points for wearing a shirt with the entire book’s text permanently embedded in the fabric. If you loved these book posters we covered, get ready to shop.
Wordies, listen up. The Litographs site is heaven for bibliophiles. They take your favorite classic books and use 75,000 words from the text to create interesting designs that go with the story. And then you can have it hand printed (front and back) on a soft cotton/poly blend shirt, poster, or bag in a variety of color schemes. I can’t think of a cooler gift for lit lovers.
Can you guess which books these tees represent?
In case you’re stumped, there’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Heart of Darkness, Emma, Canterbury Tales, Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, and of course, Les Miserables.
Here’s the back of The Last Unicorn shirt (also at top), showing the moons counted until Amalthea becomes human forever. Such an excellent detail.
Part of the fun is checking out the dozens of designs, the available colors, and the interesting and unexpected continuations of each image on the back. And, if you’re me, getting out a magnifying glass to read an entire shirt while wearing it. Our only complaint: Where are the kids’ sizes? My daughter would love Alice in sage. –Delilah
