Site Of The Month

Out Of Print Clothing "celebrates the world’s great stories through fashion." Meaning: they sell some seriously amazing stuff. They have the usual t-shirts and phone cases, but my absolute favourite item in their shop is the E-book covers which are made to look like hardback book covers;

How cool is that? I personally don't own an e-book, but if you do, what a great case to have for it! They're made by the oldest bookbinder in the US, so they're fantastic quality, but not available until mid October, so if you're interested in getting one of these there's a mailing list you can join here, which will notify you once they're in stock. Like I said they also produce clothing and accessories, of which the below are just some of my favourites;
Pride & Prejudice Fleece Jumper & Women's T-Shirt | The Great Gatsby Fleece Jumper, T-Shirt & Journal | The Sun Also Rises Women's T-Shirt |  Ulysses Women's T-Shirt | The Outsiders Women's T-Shirt | The Old Man & The Sea T-Shirt
(All items shown as women's are also available in men's/unisex)
I also really love their droog fleece jumper, which I mentioned in my Autumn Wishlist, and will hopefully be buying soon! I just think Out Of Print is such an amazing company, every time they sell a product one book is donated to a community in need through Books For Africa, which is so wonderful. They also run a monthly book club which anyone can join in, and is run through their Facebook and Twitter pages. Out Of Print says; 
"Our products feature iconic and often out of print book covers. Some are classics, some are just curious enough to make great t-shirts, but all are striking works of art. We work closely with artists, authors and publishers to license the content that ends up in our collections. Each product is treated to feel soft and worn like a well-read book.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."
They also encourage you to take a snap of yourself wearing or using your new Out Of Print purchases and sending it to them to upload on the "What's Your Story?" section of the site, I wonder if any of you will be up there soon?
