the rest is rust and stardust

One of my favorite book covers in tee shirt form? Yes puhleeease! Stuff like this tends to smack of Urban Outfitters-type cheese-dickery, but I feel quite a bit better about this series. Plus it's got me daydreaming about other covers I'd love to don. This is another fave...but maybe it's not quite so wearable, heh?

Ah wow, thankyou thankyou thankyou. Old bookcover designs are almost my favourite things.

'cheese dickery' - your way with words never fails to amuse.

I'm particularly partial to the Master and Margarita one meself...and it's so great that they are reasonably priced AND they donate a book to a community. way better than UO.

ahhhhhhhh one of my favorite books in the uuuniveerrrse (and quite possibly THE fave after a recent re-read)!

unfortunately my copy is not covered in this coolness you're exhibiting here, but there is so much sand in its pages now i may have to consider an upgrade- you Ringos and your timing...!

Love it, despite slight cheese dickery :D

I've always wanted to put old ladybird book covers on to tees, particularly the animal ones..

I have a poster of that! There is actually a little Donald Duck embroidered on the front of her gatsby hat. Such a funny, weird detail.

Oh, these are so nice!! :D I'd like the 1984, Brave New World, and Catcher in the Rye ones!
