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!

Yellowbird Project
We’re starting a new series on Fridays called Fair Trade Fridays. We love stuff that not only provides you with something cool but helps others at the same time. We’ve handpicked each project just for you!

Montreal based group, The Yellowbird Project are making some awesome T-shirts.
The best part? Each of Yellowbird’s t-shirts are designed by indie artists from all over the globe. Musicians like Bon Iver, Andrew Bird, Grizzly Bear and Ra Ra Riot have all contributed designs.
For just $25 you can buy a shirt crafted by your favorite artist, and the money goes to the artist’s favorite charity.
Here’s some of the artists and the charities they are connected to:
Andrew Bird – Pegasus Special Riders Inc. – horseback riding for individuals with special needs
• The Shins – The Nature Conservancy of Canada
Grizzly Bear – Brighter Planet – A group working to reduce our carbon footprint
Devendra Banhart – Teenage Cancer Trust
• and many, many more

Head on over to The Yellowbird Project and get yourself a cool t-shirt. If you do, let us know! post a comment or shoot us a picture.
