It’s nice to see nerdy, literate types becoming cool again, at least if you measure massive societal shifts by’s t-shirt market (and who doesn’t):

literary t-shirts

I’d go for Fahrenheit 451, though “Death of a Salesman” would probably impress more people…


Writers can always use more t-shirts; we mostly hang around the house in sweatpants and yesterday’s underwear anyway.

Still, I wonder. Are the wearers of these t-shirts reflecting their love of a good, classic book, or is the effect more like public broadcasting, which everybody says they support — but only a few of us actually do?

Keep writing (otherwise your book will never get its own t-shirt), Tom Chandler.
