Tsundoku Print



TSUNDOKU - acquiring reading materials but letting them pile up in one's home without reading them. It is also used to refer to books ready for reading later when they are on a bookshelf


WHO KNEW there was a term for what we are all guilty of? 

Well, there is - The term originated in the Meiji era as Japanese slang. It combines elements of tsunde-oku and dokusho. 


As a lover of both literature and words with a deeper meaning, this just had to be turned into something to symbolise the obsession with buying, hoarding and adding to reading pile.
Do you , or do you know someone who has what could be a small library in their home due to buying so many books? Do you have a "to be read" pile that you keep adding to, re arranging when a new release comes out that you just HAVE to get, pushing other books down the pile that you "will get to later"?
Read on (pun intended!), my friend!


This fun design takes on the look of a Karate Dojo meets retro 80's movie poster, with a rather magical book dragon guarding his TBR (to be read) pile. Showing japanese symbols for Tsundoku on the spine of the books, this design makes a striking and fun addition to any library.


The rainbow holographic foil brings out all the details, in a magical spectrum of colour that's different from every angle.

A work of art to adorn any wall - be it a reading nook, office space, or anywhere that could use a dose of colour and magic! 


Fly your TSUNDOKU FLAG PROUDLY  - I, for one, am glad all these books have a home, and one day they will be read. (Really, they will.)
