The write stuff

Who said literature was dead? While the likes of Borders and Angus & Robertson are shutting shop in cities across the globe, there still exists a market that appreciates brilliant literature. And while readers might now be used to downloading such classics as Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights or Bram Stoker’s Dracula at the touch of a button, some still crave good ol’ textural, hardcopy reminders of the literary greats.

That’s where avid lit-loving website comes in. It’s Australia’s primary online literary accessory store where you can get your mitts on anything from a limited edition t-shirt emblazoned with a portrait of Dostoevsky to a Jane Austen jigsaw puzzle; a bracelet stamped with covers of previously banned books to matchbooks graced with the faces of Shakespeare, Twain, Dickinson and Poe. Goodness gracious, the site even sells packets of ‘Novel Tea’, with each teabag tagged with a literary quote. Which brings a particular CS Lewis quote to mind: “You can’t get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me”. Now we can really snuggle up on the couch with a decent bit of lit.

Pictured, from top to bottom: Author Matchbooks (pack of 6) $10, ‘Novel Tea’ Pouch (2 per pack) $9.99 and Bookshelf Print Address Book $24.95.
