Cute but questionable


Heeeyyy... Out of Print clothing has added a new bunch of shirts based on Pelican Books' latest editions of Shakespeare, featuring gorgeous artwork by graphic designer Manuja Waldia. I still totally love these designs, although...

On the edge


I got an email this morning about Book Mail, an upcoming "mystery box" offer from Book Riot and Out of Print Clothing. According to the official description, the box is a one-time thing (not a subscription service), will cost $60, is guaranteed to be worth more than the purchase price, and will contain...

Arm and a leg


I can't afford this stuff (note: I don't know what it costs... but I'm sure I can't afford it), but I am weirdly attracted to Marc Jacobs/Disney's Alice in Wonderland-inspired capsule collection...

I covet.


I'm not a big fan of H.G. Wells's 1895 novel The Time Machine, but I am totally in love with the many and varied cover images it has inspired. Seriously, the story has been graced with some...

Geek gear


Out of Print has introduced several new designs as part of their new Sci-Fi Collection, including The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Handmaid's Tale, Ender's Game, and Neil Gaiman's American Gods. Personally, I don't think that last one qualifies...

Holiday Gift Guide: Kate Beaton t-shirts


This year we're doing our Wordcandy-approved holiday gift list a little differently: we're going to put together a series of eight mini posts, each featuring a different gift idea. Like always, we're way late with these suggestions (our sincerest apologies to our Hanukkah-celebrating readers), but at least all of our suggestions are well under fifty bucks...

JAWS... for plankton


I love everything about this "Moby" t-shirt by artist Terry Fan. I like the Jaws shout-out, I like the idea of a rage-filled whale, and I even like the price ($22, which isn't bad for that level of awesome)...

Nothing says high fashion like zombies and aliens


Last summer, Threadless trotted out a reader-designed t-shirt based on The Day The Saucers Came, a story written by Neil Gaiman. Threadless is currently holding one of their frequent sales, so if you're in the market for this t-shirt it's available in a wide variety of guys' sizes for a mere $12.95...

Ridiculously adorable... but also just ridiculous

I spend a lot of time thinking about punctuation, so I covet these Kate Spade Air Quote Mittens with a fiery passion. Sadly, I would need these gloves to be at least 75% off before I would even c...

The Scarlet T-Shirt

The L.A. Times recently posted an article about literary-themed t-shirts. I particularly liked the style of and idea behind these baseball-style shirts... but I wish they'd chosen better characte...
