The beloved "Always Carry A Book" shirts are now available for PREORDER until May 8th! 
Inspired by a WPA Chicago poster, this design is a throwback to a time when the government recognized creativity and art as vital means of calling citizens to action, employing artists to create posters, murals, sculpture and more. Designed by Shelby Rodeffer. Here are the details:
  • We will take preorders for the shirts until May 8th! The proceeds from all preorders placed until May 1st will go to Chicago Community Jail Support.
  • The great folks at Gibson Print, the 100% union labor, employee-owned print shop, will print the design on 50% combed ring spun cotton 50% polyester unisex shirts and ship them to us. We will then ship them out by June 1st, and send along tracking information when they're on their way to you.
  • Because we are unable to ship merch via media mail, the shipping charge for shirts is $6.99. We will alter the shipping fee at check out and notify you of your revised total via email.
  • Be sure to indicate the size you'd like (XS, S, M, L, XL, 2X, 3X, or 4X) in the order notes at checkout.
