Worn??? Is that a typo??? Nope!!!
Litographs is one of my favourite websites for finding all manners of book paraphernalia. They even have temporary tattoos for people who have contemplated getting a literary tattoo but wonder if the words will still be legible once they’ve aged. So, if you’re looking to sport a few memorable lines from a novel or poem, or a nice little author tribute, those tattoos may just be for you.
However, while perusing their website, which I urge you to check out here, I came across an ad that said “The Best Book I’ve Ever Worn.” So, of course, I clicked on it, and lo and behold, it’s real!!! Litographs has designed over 100 t shirts that have the words of books, plays, and poetry printed on them. That’s correct: printed on them.
These t shirts are actually the coolest things I have come across in quite some time and, while I love every single one of them, I want to showcase a few of my favourites:
Now, see how the background looks a little blurry??? Well get this: those are words!!! Just so the full extent of the coolness of these t shirts can be appreciated, below is a zoomed in view of the “plain” part of The Great Gatsby t shirt:
I am completely in love with this idea. For $34, you get an adorable t shirt, with the words of your favourite novel, play or poem printed on it and an image perfectly matched to the text, and you can choose from a variety of colours. Some books, like the Wizard of Oz even have multiple images to choose from.
This weekend, I will be snatching up one or two of these, as they are such a unique take on book paraphernalia, and take a love of literature to a whole new level. Let me know in the comments if you decide to scoop up one of these incredible shirts, and which one you picked, as I am very interested to hear as many testimonials about the different designs as I can.
