As big book lovers, we just love getting the chance to sit back, relax and dive headfirst into a good book.

You really can’t beat getting lost in a story that can quickly whisk you off to another land. One moment you could be sat on a hot busy train chattering down the line, and then the next off on an weird and wonderful adventure on a tropical island or perhaps being chased through busy streets by some secret agents. Anything is possible!

It’s this passion for stories that inspired one of our favourite clothing brands, Out of Print into action. Capturing some of the most iconic books and their artwork, they work closely with the creators and designers to ensure that the end result is a perfect reflection of the original classic. It certainly shows!
But wait it get’s better, for each Out of Print T-Shirt sold, one book is donated to a community in need through their amazing partner, Books For Africa.

Take a look at some of our latest designs that have just hit the TruffleShuffle shelves this week….

Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes T-Shirt

Taken to all new heights with its modern times Cumberbatch adaptation, Sherlock has become even more of a cult icon and is as much loved now as it’s ever been!
“It is more than possible; it is probable.” This fabulous design is from the 1892 first edition Sherlock Holmes cover and is a great find for fans of the classic detective books.

Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas T-Shirts

Another classic story with a iconic screen adaptation, everyone knows the weird and wild Johnny Depp, Benicio Del Toro flick which was released back in 1998, but why not dive in and take a peep at the book!
From the first edition cover designed by artist Ralph Steadman. The New York Times wrote that “Steadman’s drawings were stark and crazed and captured Thompson’s sensibility, his notion that below the plastic American surface lurked something chaotic and violent. The drawings

The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy T-Shirts

Originally a radio comedy broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1978, Hitchhiker’s Guide quickly became so much more than that spreading to TV series, video games, stage shows and more!
“Don’t Panic.”  This awesome tee features the book cover artwork from the 1980 US edition cover, a great find for any sci-fi fan!

The Handmaids Tale T-Shirts

Margaret Atwood sums up The Handmaid’s Tale by saying, “it’s a study of power, and how it operates and how it deforms or shapes the people who are living within that kind of regime.” This tee features the cover art from the 1986 first US edition cover.

With soooo many amazing book t-shirts to pick from, each inspired by the instantly recognisable covers which we all know and love, our latest collection is a great chance for you to share you passion for these great stories and the characters that made them.

Possibly THE biggest retro brand ever, Casio has been a household name for a long as we can remember. When it came to gadgets in the 80s, 90s and well…even today, it’s hard to think of some of the most iconic products without something from this
.
Perhaps not one of the best and most successful launches ever known to man, Casio’s first attempt at wowing potential customers pretty much ended in failure. Boarding the plane to their very first product reveal, two of the founding Kashio brothers quickly learned that their super delicate and high-tech calculator was simply too large for them to take onto the plane…
.
A quick solution was to remove the top part of the contraption, which, much to the brother’s dismay, would irreparably damage it.

Well…it did and made for a less than impressive first presentation. But fear not! Just as the brothers arrived home, somewhat discouraged to say the least, a representative from Uchida Yoko Co. Ltd, paid them a visit and asked to see their wonder calculator. It was a success and seven years of hard work in development had suddenly paid off. A contract was signed with Uchida Yoko as the exclusive dealer, and in today back in June 1957, Casio Computer Co. Ltd, was born!

So what about the watches you cry?? Well seeing huge success with their range of personal calculators, Casio took the leap further afield and produced their very own wrist watches later in 1974 called The Casiotron, a watch that features a fully automatic calendar.This watch not only showed the hours, minutes, and seconds, but also had a unique function that could automatically determine the number of days in a month. Instant cool!
From then we’ve seen countless amazing designs from this vintage brand covering all shapes, colours, functions and siza….most of which we’ve owned!
Why not celebrate this momentous moment in time with a classic wristwatch of you very own. Take a look at our very own range of retro Casio Watches available from only £16.99….
So what are your memories of this iconic brand? Which designs have you owned? xoxo

We can still remember it now. Curled up on the sofa, desperately trying to grab as many pillows as we could get our hands on to hide behind, only peeping through the cracks in our fingers to catch a glimpse and quickly back again. This of course was our first 1975 classic Jaws experience and…well… we loved it!

Every once in a while a film comes along that totally changes the game, whether it’s with ultra cool new revolutionary special effects, amazing acting performances, or perhaps all out shocking storylines we’ll never forget. These films quickly go down in history and earn themselves the title of a classic or perhaps a retro movie icon, Jaws is certainly one of these films!

Directed by movie legend Steven Spielberg, Jaws (based on the books) follows the story of a small island community called Amity which quickly becomes the hunting ground of a huuge (no really…huge!) Great White Shark. After some odd goings on and an attack on a local boy, the mother of the latest victim put a large bounty on the sea beast’s head which soon sends would-be shark hunters on the case to catch their prize, but this is only the start of the Sharks feeding frenzy….
.
Always wanting to have a little nosy into some of our favourite films, we’ve been doing a little swimming around the depths of the internet and have discovered some simply amazing behind the scenes shots of the great beast itself and of course the iconic cast and crew. Take a peep at some of our favourite snaps and perhaps put some of those deep blue sea fears to bed :)
.
Cool huh! Doesn’t seem so scary after all now :)

If you’re as big a fans of this 70s icon as we are (the film or the shark that is), why not pick up one of our cool new Jaws T-Shirts today and start spreading the love with some classic vintage designs….
