"My courage always rises with every attempt to intimidate me." - Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice Today marks the anniversary of Jane Austen’s death in 1817 and 201 years later her words are still as inspiring as ever
A Wuthering Heights inspired book to go with my Wuthering Heights inspired pin!
As a huge fan of a Wuthering Heights, I’m excited to dip into this new short story collection, ‘I am Heathcliff.’ Curated by Kate Mosse and commissioned for Emily Brontë’s bicentenary year, this collection showcases writing from 16 authors including Juno Dawson and Hanan al-Shaykh Thank you so much to @boroughpress for sending me a copy #iamheathcliff#gifted
Wuthering Heights enamel pin is available in our shop.
‘I incite this meeting to rebellion! Be militant each in your own way, I accept the responsibility for everything you do!’ - Emmeline Pankhurst, born #onthisday in 1858
Our Magic Wand t-shirt has been restocked in all sizes A huge thank you to @shethespy for this magical photo
“Although they are only breath, words which I command are immortal” - Sappho
Often regarded as the first woman poet, very little is known about Sappho’s life. What we do know is that she lived on the island of Lesbos over 2,500 years ago, where she composed lyrical poetry which explored themes of love and desire. Sadly very few fragments of her work have survived. It has been suggested that Sappho’s work was suppressed due to her sexuality and the erotic content of her poems, which featured expressions of love for other women. There’s speculation that the 4th century Greek church authorities had arranged for the destruction of her poems as a result.
Here we’ve immortalised Sappho’s words for you to wear with pride 🧡 #pingamestrong
So excited to launch our first embroidered tee!
Inspired by Maya Angelou’s powerful poem, ‘Still I Rise,’ we’ll be donating 10% of the sales from this t-shirt to @actionaiduk - an international charity working with the poorest women and girls in the world to change their lives for good.
You can now pre-order this t-shirt for a special price of £20 with free UK shipping. Pre-orders will close on Friday 13th July and we’re not sure whether this t-shirt will be a permanent fixture in the shop so it’s best to grab one now (if we do decide to continue them after the pre-order ends they’ll go up to £22)! Just click on the link in the photo to pre-order yours.
If embroidered tees aren’t your thing, we’ll also be releasing a screen-printed version of the full ‘Still I Rise’ design (the same as our pin) in a week or two.
“I need solitude. I need space. I need air. I need the empty fields round me; and my legs pounding along roads; and sleep; and animal existence.” - Virginia Woolf, The Diary of Virginia Woolf
Me too, Virginia. There are few places more relaxing than a field full of lavender in full bloom #whprelax
The strongest of pin games ♀️ #feministpins (Individual makers tagged)
You may remember a few months ago we released a pre-order for our Persuasion tee. Well, as I am the most annoyingly over-prepared person in the world, I ordered loads of extra tees just in case anyone wanted to exchange theirs for a different size. Now a couple of months has passed and everyone has received their pre-orders, I’ve listed the left over t-shirts on our website. So if you missed out last time then now is your final chance to grab one!
Our Seconds Sale is live in our Etsy shop now! •
We have super high standards here at Literary Emporium so when we spot a product with tiny imperfections, we put it in the ‘seconds’ box. Instead of languishing in the seconds box forever, we’re selling these less than perfect products at bargain prices in our @etsyuk shop. If you’d like to give a home to a discounted pin (including these wand pins), t-shirt or notebook, then click on the link in our bio to visit our Etsy Seconds Sale! Be quick as I have a feeling it will sell out fast
