Amazing New Out of Print T-Shirts You Literary Won’t Want To Miss!

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 your passion for these great stories and the characters that made them.
