New Hemingway wearables March 26, 2015 – Posted in: books in design, Content, product design, Video – Tags:



The newest offering from Litographs, the company that creates literary merchandise where every “design emerges from the text of a book,” is derived from a pair of Hemingway novels.

 The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms are now available for your wearing pleasure. 

That’s right, two classics from Papa’s canon, mashed up and made anew.

Litographs works closely with artists “to create a new visual experience for classic and contemporary works alike. From a distance, the artwork illustrates a theme, character, or setting from each book’s descriptive pages. Move closer and the text becomes fully legible.”

 Hemingway is just the latest in a long line of books to get the Litographs treatment. From works by Shakespeare to Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother your bound to find a design of interest, then you need to decide if you want to wear it, hang it or drink from it!
