Could be a fun subtle shirt while teaching diffusion....

Neat.

What really makes this design worth is the lightness that prevails throughout. What I mean is that the books are very minimal looking and they just feel like they contain letters that will float away... does that make any sense? probably not.

Still wishing there were some golden letters, but it's beautiful nonetheless.

Thanks for the critique. Makes sense to me. This one was surprisingly tough for me to do. I wanted to jam more and more detail in it but it all started to get weighed down.

I like the design a lot, but would like it even more to the side and lower, so the books are at the bottom edge of the shirt. I just got Cho's wave shirt today, and the print is awesome except for the awkward 5" up from the bottom placement. I fear this design would print similarly, and that would keep me from buying.

Actually that's what I was planning. As far down and as far to the edge as possible. I just don't know the guides on these "real shirts" as opposed to the cartoon shirts that woot provides directly. I thought I got it as close to the edge and bottom as I could. I could be wrong

makes sense to me. It's a wonderful design.

It also makes me fear for my books. <looking over to make sure books are closed...>
