Holiday Gift Guide: Out of Print Clothing

December 10, 2011

It is that time of year again folks. Time to make your list, check it twice, and freak out about how on earth you are going to think of gifts for everyone on said list. Well dear friends, I bring good news (of great joy), Out of Print Clothing recently launched their new Children’s Line !

What does this mean? What am I saying? How is this helpful? Let me explain…

Out of Print Clothing is a [really wonderful] company that makes t-shirts, sweatshirts, iphone cases, tote bags, stationary, journals, etc., using the classic cover art from all of your old favorite books. Now, it is every literature geek’s dream to be fully decked out, from head to toe, in their favorite authors, and Out of Print is making that dream a reality. I own the Pride & Prejudice t-shirt (obviously), as well as the ridiculously comfortable Catcher in the Rye fleece. Not to mention that their Great Gatsby tote-bag, and Wonderful Wizard of Oz long-sleeved tee are on my personal Christmas wish-list. And what is even more wonderful is that, for every item you purchase, Out of Print donates one book to a community in need through Books for Africa.

I had the amazing opportunity to speak with the co-founder of this fabulous company last spring, to help their team narrow down the list of Children’s titles for their new and improved Kids’ line. We discussed old classics, new favorites, and everything in between.

And I am so excited to announce that the updated line for little ones has officially launched! I couldn’t be more pleased with Out of Print’s final collection of tees. It is so exciting to see so many familiar titles! I love how they chose a wide variety of old and new favorites; from Charlotte’s Web, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Corduroy, to In the Night Kitchen and Olivia. 

Fun Fact: Did you know that this picture book was banned in parts of the U.S. because the Police are depicted as pigs?

"Miss Binney stood in front of her class and began to read aloud from Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, a book that was a favorite of Ramona's because, unlike so many books for her age, it was neither quiet and sleepy nor sweet and pretty" - Ramona the Pest

 

So if you are searching for great gifts to give to the little (or big) bookworms in your life, look no further than Out of Print!

Not only will you give them the opportunity to wear their favorite titles, you will also be giving them quality products & comfortable clothes, as well as the satisfaction of donating a book to a community in need!
