Retail Tuesday: Novel-T


Image credit:

This week’s Retail Tuesday is brought to you by my Pinterest boards (I pinned some of these so long ago and completely forgot about them) and a brand name that is SUPER clever: Novel-T. Genius.

“Jerseys are a great way to show support for your heroes–if your heroes happen to be athletes. But what if your heroes are found in the bookstore instead of the ballpark?

Novel-T offers an opportunity to express your support for the all-stars of literature. For those who feel a connection to certain writers or characters–be it Walt Whitman’s expansive exultations, Huck Finn’s mischievous morality, Kurt Vonnegut’s humorous humanism, or Bartleby’s seemingly inscrutable insubordination–these super-soft, slim-fit jersey-style tees are a winning way to wear what you read.”

I’m in. Do you think they’ll custom make a tee? I’m thinking they’re severely lacking in the Tolkien department. But I am also feeling Gatsby and Quixote… the great and the dreamer.

Introducing “Retail Tuesday”

ImageI love swag of all kinds, but I especially love literary swag. Why not show off your love of all things bookish on your walls, in your wardrobe or in your accessories? Since most book lovers feel the same, I thought I’d start “Retail Tuesday.”

Why Tuesday? For the alliteration, mostly, but also because Tuesday isn’t anything. It’s not the first day of the week. It’s not hump day. It’s not almost Friday. And it’s certainly not Friday or the weekend. It just floats there, in the middle of the week being nothing. Maybe it’ll help me to dislike Tuesdays a little less.

Without further ado, please check out Bookishly for all your wall envy art, jewelry and greeting cards. Bookishly uses rescued books, comics and sheet music in hand framed eco-friendly wood. Since 2009, they’ve developed a range of offerings from literary and musical favorites to “geek” interests such as binary and mathematical equations. Each piece is printed onto an individual original book page using an exclusive hand drawn font, so you know your art will be unique.

Honestly, how great are these? I want them all.
