Purchase of this shirt sends one book to a community in need

Out of Print is a New York City fashion brand launched in January 2010. Life-long friends and avid readers, Jeff LeBlanc and Todd Lawton, founded the company after realizing that much of their shared interests and conversations revolve around their favorite books and authors. As important as books are as personal expressions, conversation starters, and community builders, Jeff and Todd felt there existed a need to get more people to join the discussion. With this feeling at heart, the idea to create a mission-driven fashion brand dedicated to celebrating the world’s greatest stories was born.

Todd, with a marketing background at Nike, and Jeff, with an addiction to graphic tees and an entrepreneurial spirit, decided the t-shirt to be the perfect vehicle to ignite their movement. For them, the t-shirt is the ultimate conversation starter. It also serves as an effective tool for Out of Print to do good—the cause, extending the unifying and transformative power of books to as many people as possible. 

Since launching its initial line of t-shirts and sweatshirts, the Out of Print collection has grown to include an array of literary gift items: tote bags, iPhone and eReader cases, home goods, notebooks, journals and stationery items—as well as a full line of toddler shirts showcasing many of the most loved classic children’s books of all time.
