We can’t behave like people in novels, though, can we?
-Edith Wharton, The Age of Innocence
The exclusive design for Febrary is People in Novels, inspired by the timeless Edith Wharton.
I love this sentiment. I remember being struck by this line when I first read The Age of Innocence a couple years back, and I have never forgotten it. I think it’s important to remember that our lives are not books, and it’s not proper to treat them as such! There are some pretty crazy characters out there. I’m just imagining myself acting like one of Wharton’s characters….uhhh, scary!
If you haven’t read The Age of Innocence yet, maybe you can make February your month. But even if not, this shirt is lovely for any book lover.
I will now also be offering Monthly Exclusive Bundles! Monthly Bundles will always include the exclusive shirt of the month, along with accompanying items featuring the month’s design. This could be prints, journals, mugs, etc – each month will look a little different!
I hope you’re excited, because I SURE am. Happy February, and happy reading!
