Books on shirts. Shirts on a mission.

Have you heard of Out of Print clothing? I think I am in love!


Out of Print Clothing is a company that celebrates classic novels through fashion.They are a shirt company that exhibits popular and sometimes out-of-print book covers on soft tshirts and sweatshirts, including such stories as Pride and Prejudice, Walden, The Sun Also Rises and Of Mice and Men.

Here are some of my faves:

Who doesn't love The Great Gatsby?!

A classic coming-of-age novel. 

The well-known Scout, Atticus and Jem. 

And it gets even better. Not only does the company create beautiful novel-inspired clothing, but they also promote a great cause. For each shirt sold, they donate a book to a community in Africa through their partner, Books for Africa. They also sell a Books for Africa tshirt which donates 100 percent of the proceeds to the cause. How great is that? 

So you can look cute, promote a classic novel, and spread the joy of reading all at the same time. 

Can it really get much better than that?

I've seen those and have had them in my "want" pile for awhile, but I had no idea how philanthropic the company was. Awesome!
