out of print clothing

found this awesome website called out of print clothing that sells tshirts that have out of print book covers on the shirt. and when you buy the shirt the website donates one book to a community in need through their partner Books For Africa.

their mission states this:
Out of Print celebrates the world’s great stories through fashion. Our shirts feature iconic and often out of print book covers. Some are classics, some are just curious enough to make great t-shirts, but all are striking works of art.
We work closely with artists, authors and publishers to license the content that ends up in our collections. Each shirt is treated to feel soft and worn like a well-read book.
In addition to spreading the joy of reading through our tees, we acknowledge that many parts of the world don't have access to books at all. We are working to change that. For each shirt we sell, one book is donated to a community in need through our partner Books For Africa.
How we read is changing as we move further into the digital age. It's unclear what the role of the book cover will be in this new era, but we feel it's more important than ever to reflect on our own individual experiences with great literary art before it's forever changed.

the shirts i want are: catcher in the rye, brave new world, slaughter house five, moby dick, fahrenheit 451.
