‘Unputdownable’ Penguin’s Classics

While this may not be new news, nor is it even American, I was still thrilled to stumble upon a print campaign that Penguin Book in Malaysia did to represent the “unputdownable” nature of some of our favorite classic novels. While I admit that my initial attraction to this campaign came when one of the books featured was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of the Baskervilles, I find the whole campaign in general incredibly charming. The agency, Saatchi & Saatchi, is based out of Malaysia, which is where this campaign ran in 2009. I only found the pictures after randomly ‘surfing’ the web, but I’m happy to have stumbled upon them and share them with you. So what do you think?

Essentials for Literature Lovers

I’m a bit of a bookworm, and I don’t care who knows it. For that reason, I was so excited to find out about this website. Out of Print Clothing (.com) sells some unique and gorgeous t-shirts featuring vintage book covers. From Pride & Prejudice, to Catch 22, there’s a perfect shirt for every reader. And best of all, each purchase is guilt-free, knowing that Out of Print works to help spread literacy and a love of reading. As their mission states:

In addition to spreading the joy of reading through our tees, we acknowledge that many parts of the world don’t have access to books at all. We are working to change that. For each shirt we sell, one book is donated to a community in need through our partner Books For Africa.

Personally, I’m excited to get this one:
