That's a lot of references! Is that the cat's hat, of in-the-hat fame?

I hope this isn't too inappropriate but I haven't seen a shirt I've liked enough to buy in weeks and what I wouldn't give for a random shirts right about now. Would seriously be in for 3 for me, 3 for a friend, and a friend asked me to notify him next time it's around.

I love this. And now I can actually own a shirt that will give guys a reason to read my chest. Eyes are up here, boys. Eyes are up here.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the a word made of pictures must be worth, like a million words.

I don't know.

So many references with some nicely adventurous choices -- since John Carter, I've been in a mood: adventures for reading; at least there's another day of weekend to pull a few off the shelves and skim them.

Awesome design! Soooo many references hidden in there, like everyone is saying. I'll proudly wear this to work, plus it'll help with my daydream sessions, as I'll just have to look down for some inspiration.

Reading is knowledge.

I live paycheck to paycheck thanks to woot.

But wouldn't the combination of pictures, each worth a thousand words, essentially multiply the total worth in words? More along the lines of ~890+ trillion words?

It's a perfect shirt for a tentative procrastinator. You don't even have to commit to procrastination, since it'll be forced on you! GENIUS!

Love it! Especially the giant whale. In for one, even though I can only figure out a third of the references.

I never enjoyed reading. I think I have read one or two books since grade 6. I think part of the reason why is that I have no imagination. This shirt is kind of inspirational, and makes me want to pick up a book.

I'll figure out

what this shirt is about

For some reason, the pictures remind me of illustrations in the Young Folks Shelf of Books we used to have. Did anyone else read these as a kid? They were awesome, just like this shirt!

Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun...

This is the first shirt that's really making me consider buying the freakishly shaped Anvil women's blanks.

I'll have to ponder some more.

I actually went into Word to see if "Pictoral Smorgasboard" was in the fonts. I'm disappointed to report otherwise.

Free shirt to someone who can list all the references, right, Woot!??

Go go!

Okay, just because I used to work at a library and I enjoy a good challenge (and am apparently a bit of a masochist) I decided to save most people the trouble and see if I could list all the references. Ramyb can come back later and fact check me if need be. Anyhoo, here's all the references I spotted:


  • Harry Potter
  • The Black Cauldron
  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar
  • The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
  • The Cat and the Hat
  • Arabian Nights/The Thousand and One Nights
  • The Little Mermaid
  • Charlotte's Web
  • The Raven
  • Moby D_ick (underscore included to pass Woot's filter)
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Sleeping Beauty
  • The Lord of the Rings
  • The Wizard of Oz
  • The Sword in the Stone
  • Hamlet
  • Harold and the Purple Crayon
  • Snow White
  • Black Beauty
  • The Three Billy Goats Gruff
  • Where the Red Fern Grows
  • Winnie-the-Pooh
  • Peter Pan
  • The Tortoise and the Hare
  • The Hunger Games
  • Little Red Riding Hood
  • Where the Wild Things Are
  • Cinderella
  • The Ugly Duckling
  • The DaVinci Code
  • The Iliad and The Odyssey
  • Le Fantôme de l'Opéra (The Phantom of the Opera)
  • 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
  • Animal Farm
  • Atlas Shrugged
  • Sherlock Holmes
  • James and the Giant Peach
  • Treasure Island


*whew!*
I'm not really sure about a couple of these, and I had no idea what some of the references were supposed to be, but this is just what I read (okay...that was bad) into it.

My favorite part is the Moby Peanut because it's epically big.

Great job ramy!

Great job! Now I'm really wondering if he outdid Shelf Life for the title of Most References in a single design.

Thanks! It kind of looks like he did to me, but then again, the references in "Read", for the most part, seem to be larger in size than those on "Shelf Life", and further spread apart, so who knows?

For those who haven't checked yet all sizes are on the new Anvil blanks; so make sure you size before you buy!

This reminds me a lot of an I Spy book, which ironically doesn't involve a whole lot of reading.

There are 10 kinds of people in this world: those who can read binary and those who can't.

Yeah, I already have enough of a problem getting men to look at my eyes rather than my chest while speaking to me, too.

Oh, pray thee, Woot Gods......here is yet another design I WOULD LOVE TO BUY ON A TOTE. Especially apropos for this, as one could tote actual books in the "READ" tote.

(I getz so many marketing ideas fer y'all......)

May the Crap be with you all!!!

I would appreciate if Ramyb posted up a letter by letter account of each reference, if he can remember them all.

Dang, that's a lotta references.
