You might be too twee to remember ye olde days of card catalogs. Us oldies had them and they was fun. Okay, so-so fun. Wikipedia is definitely faster. But less romantic.
For those of us who are shameless about our love for books, there is a company made just for us. It’s called Out of Print. The folks from Out of Print aren’t reviving lost tomes so much as they’re lifting iconic images, phrases and memoranda out of print and delivering it right to our gaping mailboxes.
Out of Print celebrates the world’s great stories through fashion. The products feature iconic book covers. Some are classics, some are just curious enough to make great t-shirts, but all are striking works of art.
Working closely with artists, authors and publishers to license the content that ends up in their collections, each product is treated to feel soft and worn like a well-read book. But without that delicious musty smell of an early Fitzgerald, we’re sorry to say. (Guys. Work on that?)
In addition to spreading the joy of reading, they’re do-gooders. They acknowledge that many parts of the world don’t have access to books at all, so for each product sold, one book is donated to a community in need through our partner Books for Africa.
Be a smartiepants. Buy this stuff up pronto.
