Limited Edition Bookish Tee (for Charity)
Latest Posts / September 5, 2013

“The merchandise was not the thing, and neither, for that matter, was the nostalgia.

Authentic vintage-label flavor meets a spiral groove sampled from the New York Times bestseller Telegraph Avenue (now out in paperback from HarperCollins). Check out my thoughts on Telegraph Avenue.
