Gift Ideas from Penguin Classics

I've just discovered the perfect gift for the book lovers in your life!

Many of you have already seen the gorgeous book designs from the award-winning Penguin Classics Deluxe Editions. Well, now they've turned these great covers into tee-shirts and tote bags!

I received a few of the samples and I can assure you that both the tees and the totes are high quality, and they are even designed and produced right here in the good old US of A! I love that the shirts come in a variety of sizes -- including children's, and The Portable Dorothy Parker one even has a girl fit.

These custom t-shirts and heavy-duty cotton tote bags (perfect for holding books!) are designed with exclusive Penguin Classics cover art from books including The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Candide, Heart of Darkness, Moby-Dick, The Portable Dorothy Parker, The Wizard of Oz, and more. The cover art was designed by leading graphic and comic artists and illustrators including Chris Ware, Seth, Mike Mignola, Tony Millionaire, Rachell Sumpter, Jillian Tamaki, and Lilli Carré.

While I absolutely adore my Dorothy Parker tee, I also love the Huck Finn one that is the perfect size for Booking Son! Not only is The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn one of my favorite books, but the artwork of Huck smoking his pipe is incredible.

And if I'm being entirely honest, my favorite of the items is the Wizard of Oz book tote. It is absolutely beautiful and has such vibrant colors. I can't wait to load it up with my yarn and books and start using it. I'm sure it will be an eye-turner!

I can't rave enough about these unique tees and totes, and I'm certain that they will be perfect gifts for this holiday season. The tees are reasonably priced  at $28 and the totes are $25. You can purchase the Penguin Classics lifestyle items here.
