Book Fashion for a Book Nerd

Several years ago, my boyfriend gave me a bracelet made out of old typewriter keys. It is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. It’s cute, but also meaningful, since writing is something that will always be a part of my life. If you want your own typewriter bracelet, there are dozens on There are many different designs, some featuring numbers, others featuring letters, or ones that spell out whole words.


The bracelet and past posts featured on The Poetics Project have me looking for other ways to show the world my love of books and writing through fashion. I fell in love with this adorable bookshelf skirt, which can be found here, after seeing it on a recent post by BookRiot.


Need to see the words on the page a little better? Pick up this cute necklace, featuring a pair of black-rimmed glasses, by Kate Spade here , and then visit your optometrist, because, really, these won’t help with your eyesight.

Always wanted to be proposed to by your own Mr. Darcy? Well, he’s a fictional character (sorry ladies), but at least with this shirt you can feel a little closer to him.


Share your love of conjunctions with these earrings, which can be found here.


Or maybe you’re more of a comic book kind of girl. In which case, take a look at the ring below.


Most of these items can be found on, which is a great place to find unique pieces of jewelry–book themed or not. These pieces, like book sculptures, are just one more reminder that books inspire others to create.

    I love this bracelet but I like to make my own stuff, and I would love to do it so it is changeable and can say different words on different days. Guess I now need to start a collection of typewriter keys. I’m not a writer but I am a word nerd and maker.
