Literary presents | Mugs

Well, I started this before Christmas and then stopped because I figured people didn’t need any more gift ideas… But I still had some links saved, and Christmas is not the only reason to buy presents, is it? And there’s also self-gifts. Celebrate yourself with a mug!

  1. Chesire Cat disappearing mug (click the gif to appreciate effect), from the Unemployed Philosophers Guide, $12.95
  2. Virginia Woolf from BlackbirdStudioUK (Etsy), £8.55
  3. Nineteen Eighty-Four from Penguin (the UK shop is not working atm), $9.95
  4. The Hobbit from CaesarGJ (Etsy), £8.55
  5. Jane Austen characters from The Literary Gift Company, £9.95 (The Shakespeare one is also amazing, so is Dickens’)
  6. I Would Prefer Not To (Bartleby the Scrivener) from Melville House, $20
  7. Shakespearean Insults from the Unemployed Philosophers Guide, $12.95
  8. Literary Lions: Lord Byron, Oscar Wilde, Virginia Woolf, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, from Right Note, £7.80
  9. Literary Transport (Little Women) from The Contemporary Home, £5.00

In case someone was wondering (I know you all were) my favourite ones are the ones in the middle column. Specially the characters one. But I have the Penguin one from P&P (which I love) and one from the Jane Austen gift shop (not on sale anymore) and maybe that’s enough JA mugs for one person <3

Reading is not simply an intellectual pursuit but an emotional and spiritual one. It lights the candle in the hurricane lamp of self; that’s why it survives.

Sometimes when I look at you, I feel I’m gazing at a distant star,’ I said. ‘It’s dazzling, but the light is from tens of thousands of years ago. Maybe the star doesn’t even exist anymore. Yet sometimes that light seems more real to me than anything.
Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun (via seabois)
