Jane Austen Sense and Sensational Tee by Sticky Comics

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen is Sense and Sensational! You too can be Regency fabulous in this gorgeous tee. In this design by Sticky Comics, Miss Austen strikes a pose made famous by Audrey Hepburn, showing us that there is true glamor in prose that is light and bright and sparkling.

This awesome design is printed in midnight blue on Soft Cream or Soft Pink ladies tees, and on Sand-colored men’s/unisex tees. Get one today — it will be the talk of the Ton.

New Shirt! The Sunset Tree Tee

We’ve added a new product to our storeThe Sunset Tree Tee!

The Sunset Tree Tee

The Sunset Tree Tee is a screenprinted reconstruction of a beautiful sunset that we photographed on the Appalachian Trail last winter. In this print, the trees are visible as silhouettes and the sky is printed using a four-color gradient technique with blue, white, yellow and orange ink.

Since the Sunset Tree Tee is screened by hand, the sunset gradient on each tee is beautifully unique. You’ll love the gorgeous colors in each one!

The original photo and accompanying haiku may be found at Bad Nanobot.
