No trend feels quite like home as much as the wave of Americana that’s been sweeping the nation. With a big nod to nostalgia, this trend celebrates all things that come from the land of the Red, White & Blue. We’re very excited to kick off our latest style series: Made in the USA. Each week we’ll be featuring a new product that’s – you guessed it – made right here in the United States. This week, we’re starting off with a set of tote bags that combine this trend with our other love – classic books.
Out of Print Clothing honors some of the greatest stories ever told through fashion and accessories. As their name suggests, they take iconic (and often Out of Print) book covers and feature them on their products. The result is a beautiful combination of literature and style. What’s even better – for each product sold, Out of Print donates a book to a community in need.
We’re thrilled to be carrying a few of their AMAZING tote bags in some of our stores. Whether you’re a devoted fan of Jane Austen or as intrigued by the mysterious Jay Gatsby as we are, you’ll be sure to fall in love with these bags.
The feathery Pride and Prejudice cover art comes from the original 19th century jacket designed by Hugh Thomson. However, if you’re anxiously awaiting The Great Gatsby film release this year, you can satisfy your Gatsby craving with the bag based off of the renowned 1925 first edition jacket by Francis Cugat. The Jane Eyre tote’s sweeping colors come from the Universal Library edition jacket.
These bags are available at select Barnes & Noble College bookstores so stop in today! Which bag will you be toting around? Post a comment!
