Clearly I’m late to the party, but I’ve just come across Book Riot’s Book Fetish series, and now I know where I’ll be doing my gift shopping this holiday season. (I operate firmly on the one for them, one for me rule.) Union Square has started assembling its holiday market, so ready or not, it’s that time of year! But this year, I’m feeling prepared:
This Shakespearean insults poster is going to come in very handy. And there are some tedious rogues in my life who might love it, too.
I might just buy a new bookcase so I have an excuse to use the Clampersand, which is genius.
Plus the many, many literate lawyers I know would look great in this t-shirt.
And this vintage library cart bar cart combines two of my very favorite things and would be a fine addition to my home. Who do I know that’s crafty enough to make it for me?
Book Fetish aside, my favorite lit paraphernalia is PosterText prints: prints made of the text of books, where the negative space forms an image. I have Little Women in my office and The Great Gatsby at home, and everyone is always amazed when they look closely.
So, my fellow book nerds, where else should I be shopping this holiday season?
