Literature T Shirts

Literature T Shirts: Strangely there are enough shirts that callout scenes from famous books to create a legit section on this site. Who knew this generation read? Or maybe this is the extent of it. They read t-shirts.

H.P. Lovecraft! Cthulhu Mythos. It’s so odd to me what gets picked up and carried by the future generations. Why is H.P. Lovecraft so super popular? He was publishing in the early-20th Century. You know like 1900s. I guess if other artists pick up the torch, and carry him decade by decade, and the writing is way ahead of its time, then it makes sense that even in 2013, Mr. Lovecraft gets love from the t-shirt world.

It started as a series of novels. It exploded as a hit television show. And, now it’s an epic video game with the ultimate goal of seeing the major characters naked. No no. The aim is to destroy the other houses and loot, pillage, and plunder, and have the gnarliest beard and smelliest animal skins.

Hey, look at that…a Game of Thrones T Shirt. You don’t see that everyday. Wait, you actually do, but this one is pretty darn clever. Not sure how the US Postal Service is going to like the design, since it’s basically an exact copy except for the words. Ah hell, they all watch and love the show as well, so no problem at all.

It’s a movie by Noah Baumbach (actually I think that was The Squid and The Whale, but that’s close enough), and a classic scene in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. And, now, of course, it’s only appropriate that the epic fight of two massive ocean creatures ends up on a t-shirt. Wouldn’t you like to be hanging out in your swimming trunks with a visor on, sitting in a old school lawn chair with replacement webbing, watching this battle way down in the dark, cold, mysterious depths of the Indian Ocean?

Bilbo Baggins grew the weed in the shire and the authorities didn’t care, because they just let dudes due what they want, if they’re not infringing on the rights of others. Now, that’s a nice world to live in. Ah…the shire.

You got a little Dr. Suess mixed with Legos, and when that combination comes together, it’s basically nearing the end of the world because of the immense awesomeness. Everybody likes Dr. Suess and everybody likes Legos, so what you have in this shirt is a juggernaut. Or a quickening of the Earth’s fate.

I love this design. It might help a smidgen that I worship Led Zeppelin and I’m mesmerized by John Bonham’s drum solo for Moby Dick during the concert at Royal Albert Hall in 1970.

This is super funny. A little different take on The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe. Not quite as hardcore. Leaves a bit of an out in case there’s some fun shit happening on Saturday night.

I have no idea what this means. I really need a VP of Pop Culture on the team, because the only media I consume is romance novels. I never know what anything means. Just kidding, I totally know this is a spoof of the Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose motto the Panthers repeated before every football game in Friday Night Lights. That was a great book by the way.

We pay cold hard cash for gold, silver, mithril and more. Smaug is that one character in The Hobbit that collects the gold. Has a lair (I’m guessing) or maybe an underground bunker. Or perhaps an old school bank or fort or something. I don’t know what I’m talking about, but I will after I watch the movie when it comes out. Or is it already out. Did you know this is my first time on the Internet?
