So, recently I came in contact with Danny from the brand Litographs. I have always been an avid reader, and was really excited to see some of my favorite books printed on shirts. Instead of just being the title or a photo of a vintage book cover, Litograph shirts actually print the ENTIRE book on to a shirt or poster. Intrigued, I knew I had to get my hands on one myself. I chose The Great Gatsby, one of my all time favorite books, and went on to wait.
Once the package came in the mail, I wasn’t completely sure what to expect. How could someone fit an entire book onto a shirt? Upon opening the package, however, I was given proof that it can be done. I honestly cannot wait to do an outfit post with this shirt, since it is so unique. It definitely will be a big conversation piece–I’ve already had people ask if they can borrow it for various 1920s related projects!

As if the style of the shirt wasn’t enough, they also help a great cause. Each shirt comes with a donation to the International Book Bank to help give books to communities in need. If Gatsby isn’t your thing, there are a bunch of other titles to choose from. You can also get your literature in poster form, featuring similar graphics.
Just a quick note about the shirts: they truly are one of a kind. Each shirt will be different, and this also means there will be some imperfections. These, however, are mostly around seams and under the arms, and are totally not noticeable. They are just little reminders that your shirt is completely one of a kind 🙂
