Out of Print Clothing, makers of fine literary clothing, have teamed up with 826National and Jeff Tweedy of Wilco to produce a shirt featuring the legendary windmill-tilter and the musical titans Wilco. The front of the shirt features a graphic of the original Don Quixote book cover designed by the artist Edward McKnight Kauffer in the 1950s, while the back of the shirt features a design by Miguel Herrera of Houston who won an open design contest inspired by the band Wilco. Participants had a limited time to conceptualize and design a graphic based on the following quote from Don Quixote selected by Jeff Tweedy: “…I can no more remember one syllable of it than the shapes of last year’s clouds.”
Each shirt also comes with a copy of Wilco’s latest album, The Whole Love.
A significant amount of the proceeds for this shirt will be split between 826CHI in Chicago and 826NYC in Brooklyn, NY, and will go toward creative writing and after-school tutoring programs for kids. That’s right: not only will you clothe yourself, you’ll be helping kids discover the joys of reading and writing.
You can purchase your own shirt at Out of Print Clothing’s website.
