Bookish & Literary-Inspired Shops
Whether you’re looking for a literary art print to decorate your home library or a bookish candle inspired by your favorite book, you’ll love these bookish shops!
Ideal Bookshelf by Jane Mount
Jane Mount is well-known for her gorgeous book spine illustrations and her beautifully-illustrated book, Bibliophile: An Illustrated Miscellany (which I read and loved!).
Lucky for us, her art can be enjoyed in the form of literary prints, mugs, tote bags, stickers, and more!
You can even request custom orders featuring book stack illustrations with your favorite books. How cool is that?!
While this book sleeve shop is based in the U.K., they ship internationally – which is how I was able to snag my favorite Peter Pan inspired fabric book sleeve a few years ago!
Not only is it beautiful, but it’s also super useful! I use it to keep my Kindle protected or to carry around paperback books in my purse (so they don’t get damaged).
Out of Print sells tons of bookish merch, from literary socks to tote bags, mugs, pouches, and more.
You’ll find items inspired by classic literature, Harry Potter, banned books, and everything in between!
I especially love their wide selection of bookish tote bags, with prints inspired by Jane Austen, classic children’s books, Harry Potter, and more.
Cara Kozik is a wonderful illustrator with a fun artistic style, and often has book-inspired products in stock.
Her illustrated mugs are super cool, and I own her Harry Potter-inspired zipper pouch (pictured below). I love how unique it is!
This shop is a book lover’s dream! They have a huge selection of bookish goods, from candles to apparel, accessories, art prints, and lots more.
This shop is especially perfect for fantasy lovers. They have lots of bookish products inspired by fantasy fandoms like ACOTAR, Fourth Wing, and more.
If you’re a fan of bookish subscription boxes, they also do those as well! Lots of options to choose from. 🙂
This is such a fun shop for bookish apparel and more! They have everything from cozy sweatshirts to enamel pins.
This bookish shop is best known for its book sleeves and reading pillows, but they also offer book-inspired drinking glasses, t-shirts, blankets, and more.
This candle company sells candles and wax melts inspired by stories (both books and popular movies/TV shows) and all things bibliophile.
I hope you enjoy browsing through these fabulous bookish shops! They have such creative literary products, any of which would make fabulous gifts for the readers in your life (or for yourself, of course!).
