Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week it is about bookish merchandise. I took a gander on Etsy for inspiration and I present some themes.
I’m particularly fond of fruity teas but I also enjoy looking at the combinations people have done, particularly to evoke fictional locations.
Related, I like the sweatshirts for fictional places particularly the estates in Jane Austen novels.
Some are book covers, some are interesting graphic designs. I love using totes to carry my stuff mostly to and from work.
I keep debating about getting these for the different sizes of paperbacks I tend to be reading.
So many people do amazing graphics, covers, phrases, or locations on t-shirts now.
I really like The Night Circus pins I saw.
I am a little persnickety about art. I have seen some interesting ones with silhouettes and locations. Watercolor ones particularly stand out to me.
I love decorating my journals and planners with washi tape.
There are so many characters I’d love to dress up as from manga and fantasy novels.
This may not count as merchandise but you do pay to get tattoos and it is physical art, it just happens to be on your skin. Part of this is money but I’m concerned I’ll be that small percentage that is allergic to the ink.
