out of print t-shirts.

June 8th, 2010 · 2 Comments

This past weekend Ryan and I went to Harvard Square to pick up some  Belton paint at Proletariat, and while I do enjoy perusing the selection of imported spray paint, I opted instead to head to Hootenanny and browse. We reconvened there sometime later, and just before heading out the entrance Catcher in the Rye caught our attention — the cover was printed on a t-shirt. We spent the next 20 minutes geeking out over the awesomeness of its awesomeness and all of the other classic book  t-shirts in stock. We’re pretty sure the salespeople thought we were trying to steal something, although it’s hard to tell in Hootenanny, which is notorious for its eagle-like ability to nab shoplifters.

Anyway, at about minute 19, the shop manager came up and chatted with us about the t’s, which are called Out of Print, and for each t-shirt sold, the company donates a book to Books for Africa. Cool! Kind of like Toms but with books. And boy, does Out of Print know how to pull on my nostalgia strings, aside from its super, super soft cotton t’s adorned with vintage book illustrations, each price tag  looks like a library book checkout card! The t’s are available in men’s and women’s sizes and are reasonably priced at $25.

    There is something for evyneore in this collection. English and Armenian speaking kids alike can enjoy these classic stories with a comical twist. The books in Armenian are an excellent read for kids in Armenian School programs. The illustrations are engaging and since the stories are familiar, our kids are more eager to read these in Armenian and reinforce their Armenian speaking and reading skills.
