T-Shirt Coffee Table Book ...


We all like t-shirts and music in one form or another. So I think we'll all like this coffee table book "Ripped: T-shirts from the Underground" in one way or another. The book is by vintage fashion collector Cesar Padilla and exhibits great t-shirts from The Ramones and Talking Heads to Madonna. Also included are contributions from Betsey Johnson and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth ... all selling points for me! Besides, I like a little post-punk and indie culture history to compliment my pink peonies on the coffee table:)

Now, it'd be even cooler if the book was also a t-shirt you could wear. I don't know precisely how that would work, but I can imagine the extent of its awesomeness.
I can't wait to flip through this one. The only weird thing? I can never commit to buying coffee table books. I'm too indecisive.

Very interesting! A good table neighbor for my PostSecret.

Oh my---John would LOVE this. He has all these old rock band t-shirts with holes in them I can't get him to part with (which, in turn, is why I love him). Adding to my list of present ideas. XO
