Penguin Mug

Categories: ,

Starbucks will be selling the novel For One More Day by Mitch Albom, author of Tuesday with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven. It's a natural progression (more natural than Starbucks getting into music or the movies), for who doesn't enjoy reading and hanging out while lingering over a cup of coffee or tea?

Here's where these mugs with designs based on the original series of Penguin Classics are a nice adjunct to your reading and coffee-drinking ritual. I selected Wuthering Heights as I'm boggled how Emily Brontë, with her erratic education, could have produced such a masterpiece (read it again, and notice how the multi-generational saga of Heathcliff, the Earnshaws, and the Lintons is related over the course of a night by two servants).

Also clever is this pair of demi-tasse cups - "Sweet Danger" and "Black Mischief."

From Art Meets Matter, the same people who brought us the Christine Keeler chair.
