100 Words #375 - This Week in Literary Lifestyle

Cool things I found in Literary Lifestyle this week.

1. The Affair - Cult literature t-shirts, prints, and digital wallpapers. 

"After much beard-stroking and bickering amidst the rubble of broken dreams and the boozers of East London, the original literature-inspired fashion brand was born in late 2007. With an insatiable curiosity for knowledge, we delve deeper than hackneyed pop culture for our inspiration. We make clothing fashioned by cult literature. We are The-Affair."

2. Mark Crick - author of four household tips books inspired by famous authors. Kafka's Soup: A Complete History of World Literature in 17 Recipes, Machiavelli's Lawn: The Great Writers' Garden Companion, Sartre's Sink: The Great Writers' Complete Book of DIY, and Household Tips of the Great Writers.
