Lustworthy: T-Shirts With Classic Book Covers

Above: Sporting an F. Scott Fitzgerald Tee: from the Out of Print Web site.

Print may be dying but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate its demise in style.

Out of Print (check out the amazing photography slideshow on the landing page) takes classic book covers and puts them on men’s and women’s t-shirts for the enjoyment of lit students, librarians, and plain ol’ bibliophiles alike.

Whether you want to proclaim your allegiance to Ayn Rand, your love for Maya Angelou, or your fears of a Huxlean future, there is a shirt for you.

There’s social good as well as literary street cred to be gained: for each shirt purchased, a book is donated through Books For Africa, a nonprofit which ships books to children and adults.
