Whistlestop Bookshop t-shirt

Our very own t-shirt designed by Jeff Wood.  The image is a Buddhist monk poring over a scroll with writing instruments at hand.  The text is from Yoshida Kenko, a late 13th-early 14th Century Japanese essayist and monk, whose Tsurezuregusa is one of my favorite books.  The quote reads:  "To sit alone in the lamplight with a book spread out before you, and hold intimate converse with men of unseen generations -- such is a pleasure beyond compare."  With the allowance that the unseen generations would also include women, I love this ideal of the reading experience.
