I absolutely love book wear. I think it’s incredibly exciting that people read books and it inspires them to create jewelry, clothing, phone cases – all kinds of goodies! I don’t have a lot of book wear, so the pieces I do have make me really happy.I absolutely love The Hobbit tote that I have – I use it almost every day!
I’m currently hunting for a new bag. Even though I really love this one, it’s a tote and I would like to have a cross-body bag. While I have yet to find the perfect bag, I have come across a lot of really awesome book-related bags and wanted to share them!
Harry Potter Marauder’s Map Bag
There are lots of map bags from the Harry Potter series, but I think this one has a little something extra. I really like the “I solemnly swear” quotation layered in white on top of the map. I also love the idea that I can sit examining the map and find many little details from the books!
Darcy’s Proposal, Pride and Prejudice
While there are many bags that feature Darcy’s proposal from Pride and Prejudice this is one of my favourites. I love how simple and elegant the writing is, and that there is no extra picture or design to distract you from the beautiful language.
Austen’s Books, Pride and Prejudice
I absolutely love the look of these book sets, plus the colour tone is really simple and elegant. I think the bag makes a really nice statement without having to read the quotation at the bottom – though I love the quotation too!
“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! — When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.” (Chapter 11, Pride and Prejudice)
Harry Potter Ravenclaw House Bag
There are some really nice House bags out there from Harry Potter, but I like this one in particular. The Ravenclaw crest is small enough that the bag doesn’t scream Harry Potter, yet it fits so perfectly on the blue and white. I would take this bag everywhere with me!
Triwizard Tournament, Harry Potter
I love bags that focus on the not-so-obvious aspects of books. This one from the Triwizard tournament does just that – and looks awesome! Plus I love that along the bottom the bag features school crests from all three competing schools.
Proclamation Make-Up Bag, Harry Potter
I adore this little bag. Similar to the Triwizard bag, it features a small element from the Harry Potter books but immediately brings back so many memories from the story.
Book wear makes me so excited! I’ll be making more posts throughout the summer to share my favourite book-related jewelry, clothing, and more. If you can’t wait, check the The Library Life’s Pinterest page. :)
