There’s a saying, "Never judge a book by its cover", but how about if the book cover appears on T-shirts? BookCrossing's newest partner, Out of Print, has licensed the rights to classic book covers and put them on t-shirts. The hangtag attached to each shirt is actually a special BookCrossing bookplate, so after buying a shirt, you can use the bookplate to label and release a book. Part of the company's inaugural launch was at the Sundance Film Festival. You can read about their wild releases here. If that's not cool enough, Out of Print's mission is to spread the joy of reading and to get books into the hands of readers whose access to books is limited.
