What an awesome idea. OPC takes awesome old book covers and prints them onto t-shirts. The best part? with every t-shirt purchased they donate to a community in Africa through the Books For Africa Program

From their website: Out of Print celebrates the world’s great stories through fashion. Our shirts feature iconic and often out of print book covers. Some are classics, some are just curious enough to make great t-shirts, but all are striking works of art.

So if you’re a fan of Catcher In The Rye or The Great Gatsby you can show it through these awesome shirts, and support a great cause while you’re at it!
