When a writer, a designer, a marketer and a photographer met

Once upon a time, Giulia asked all of her friends to send her a list with their favourite ten books... The books they would put on an imaginary, shiny golden shelf. Elena had a wonderful idea because, with the list, she also sent an amazing sketch with her beloved books stacked in a pile. Giulia was astonished and, for once in her life, she couldn't find the words to describe how she liked Elena's idea. She thought: "Wow. I'd LOVE to have a t-shirt with my favourite books on it. It's a way to celebrate them and yes, also to show that I'm a nerd and that I'm an antisocial person. I want it!"
Elena immediately agreed with Giulia's plan and antisocial behaviour and they both decided to open Bookstee: a way to have your books next to your heart.
Problem: Elena and Giulia are sassy girls but they are pretty useless when it's time to talk about websites and tech stuff. That's why Alessio jumped in the project and helped the girls with that difficult part the girls don't even want to talk about. Francesco joined the team at the beginning of 2014: he is our photographer and manages the shipping part.
And finally, Bookstee is ready!

Last updated on July 23, 2014
Our bookstees are created exclusively for you.

Tell us which are your favourite books, we will draw them in a stack and we will print them on a 100% cotton white t-shirt.
The result will be like the one you can see in the pic, but with your books!

This is what you need to do:
1) Think carefully about your TEN (or nine, or twelwe...we're not strict) favourite books;
2) Tell us your list;
3) Buy the item through Etsy;
4) Wait patiently until your bookstee arrives in your mailbox!

We like to handle the process of creating your bookstee from start to finish and to do it with our own hands at our own pace: that's why your book stacks will be drawn by Elena (she's an amazing designer) and printed on a 100% cotton white t-shirt.

We will keep you updated with pictures and lovely messages about the birth and trip of your bookstee!
