Apparel for Book Lovers

Why just read books when you can show your love for them everyday! From socks to shirts, accessories and beyond, we’ve picked something for everyone. Keep these in mind as gifts for your book loving friends, too! 


Edgar Allen Poe Socks

Show your love for Edgar Allen Poe’s classic horror tales with these socks. These are from Out of Print, which is one of the best places on the net for book-related apparel. We’ll feature Out of Print a couple more times before this list is over.


Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas T-Shirt

This awesome shirt features the cover of Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Ralph Steadman’s wild drawing takes center stage, of course. You can grab this one over at Out of Print.


Harry Potter House Scarves

Do you know a person who belongs in Ravenclaw? How about a Hufflepuff? The different houses are available over at Think Geek.


I Rise T-Shirt

Pop ATL’s awesome “I Rise” shirt features the most iconic lines from Maya Angelou’s famous poem. It’s a simple but powerful design. This shirt is perfect for any Angelou fan.


Jon Snow Fur Hoodie

Winter is coming (in fact, it’s kind of already here). This hoodie is inspired by Jon Snow’s hoodie in the A Song of Ice and Fire book series and the Game of Thrones television series. Think Geek has the exclusive product, complete with a faux-fur hood that folds out to let you wear the fur over your shoulders, Night’s Watch style.


Katniss Everdeen Hunting Cowl

At $149.99, this one isn’t cheap, but hey: you can’t get caught in the middle of the Hunger Games with sub-par apparel. This cowl is designed just like Katniss’ outfit in the Hunger Games books and movies. May the odds be ever in your favor.


Moby Dick/Jaws Mash-Up T-Shirt

Online marketplace Society6 sells some great t-shirts, including this literary one. This t-shirt features Moby Dick in a send-up of the famous Jaws film poster. Get it for a literature buff with a sense of humor.


Slaughterhouse-Five T-Shirt

This t-shirt is from Litographs, a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based company that makes really unique shirts. Look closely at the light red on the shirt – it’s actually made up of the text of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five! You’ll find other novel options over at Litographs’ website.


Virginia Woolf Tank Top

This tank top combines a portrait of Virginia Woolf with a lighthouse. The lighthouse, of course, stands for To the Lighthouse, one of Woolf’s most famous works. This is a great piece of casual wear for a reader with good taste.


Where the Wild Things Are Tote

Here’s another great offering from Out of Print: a Where the Wild Things Are tote bag. Because the best way to carry your library books around is in a bag with another book’s cover on it.
