Out of Print: books on shirts, shirts on a mission


I used to wear tons of graphic shirts that held absolutely no meaning behind the design and, since noticing that I was a walking advertisement for something that didn’t even exist, I’ve stopped wearing them. But these shirts are ones I could get behind, or, well… in.

Out of Print is more than just a shirt company. Their shirts feature book covers (many of which are the original covers from many years ago) and they help those who don’t have access to books. “For each shirt [they] sell, one book is donated to a community in need through [their] partner Books For Africa.”

I’ve chosen my favorite to show you here, but if I had to choose one, I’d go for The Great Gatsby t-shirt, hands down. That cover designed by Mikey Burton “as part of his grad school thesis project to get young adults interested in reading” caught my eye immediately and I absolutely love it! Even if it’s not my favorite book of the bunch, that shirt definitely is. Which would you wear?
