I love, love, love my new bag which I purchased from Levenger! It works for me on so many completely dorktastic levels:
- One side is in English, and the other is Latin. Horray for Latin! Did you know that they used to teach Latin in Public Schools in the 70s? I credit my ability to figure out all kinds of words by their roots because of my exposure to Latin. Why did they stop this?!! (Rhetorical question)
- Love the design. They managed to make the bag contemporary by using Helvetica (I think? I am not extremely font savvy) , with the oxblood single large letter, suggesting an illuminated manuscript in the most current of ways.
- If you are a Shadow of Night fan – OMG! The Bodleian Library!!!
- It is SO well made. This is not your typical tote. It is stitched to perfection in England with quality, weighty cotton. It’s gusseted, and I love the tall shape — perfect for everything you need to carry about. Your lunch, big art books, a baguette, drugstore odds and ends, a pound of coffee, etc. At one time, even!
I’ve been carrying it around for a few weeks, and couldn’t be happier with my purchase. I thought I’d mention it to you all since it would make an unusual and extremely bookish gift, and ’tis the season!
