Am I alone in saying that I kind of want one of the book sweaters featured in this parody informercial hosted by Gravity Falls‘ Kristen Schaal and Jason Ritter? They appear to be custom sized for Gravity Falls: Journal 3, but they should make them in a wide array of sizes—and don’t forget plus! My Brandon Sanderson collection gets chilly.

These cotton Storiarts writing gloves are stylish, fingerless, and feature built-in inspiration in the form of passages from literary classics.

Some of their current styles include passages from Dracula, Anne of Green Gables, Sherlock Holmes, The Raven, Alice in Wonderland, and Peter Pan among others. I’m in love with all of them. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

book shirts

A company called Litographs (which started out on Kickstarter several years ago) has created a bunch of lovely t-shirts and totes using the text of classic books/films. That’s right—the design is made entirely from text that can be read when viewed up close.

Plus, they partner with the International Book Bank and send a book to a community in need for every order placed.

The Olde Book Purse

itkl_olde_book_purse

First there was the Olde Book Backpack, and then there was the Olde Book Messenger Bag. Now that olde book is more compact than ever as a purse.

It looks like an old leather-bound volume you’d find in your grandmother’s library, but it functions like a handbag. It holds your wallet, your phone, possibly your eReader or your book, depending on their respective sizes. It has an adjustable shoulder strap that comes off entirely in case you want to use it as an oversized clutch or pop it on a bookshelf to sneakily hold something. Like all books, with this one you can use your imagination.

Check out additional pics below. Apparently, is’s big enough for Kiki to use on her deliveries.

literary jewelry

There are very few things in this world that warrant the destruction of a book. Artist Jeremy May of Littlefly maaaay be one of these exceptions thanks to his amazing one-of-a-kind jewelry designs. The pieces are created by laminating together hundreds of pages from old, discarded books—shaping them into rings, bracelets, necklaces, and more before being finished with a high gloss coating.

These beautiful pieces of jewelry are all carefully cut from the books so that they fit snugly within the excavated space—like a hidden jewelry box with a single treasure inside.

The Olde Book Backpack

It’s a book backpack that holds your books! Don’t you dare put a Kindle into this thing. A fake book with a hollow for a smaller book might be funny though.

There are times the Internet makes me insane, but its all worth it when I see stuff like this custom made cat library skirt from Fangirl Boutique. Cats and books (and maybe a cup of coffee) are all you need.

The image above isn’t great, but you can take a closer look at the design after the break.
