Walt's With Me Tote Bag (Special Edition)
We are proud to now offer our "Walt's With Me" design on 100% Recycled Cotton Eco friendly Tote bags! Like all our items these are printed in the USA! You can finally tote your favorite books around with some literary style.
The image on this Walt's With Me tote is adapted from the print (an engraving of a photo) used as frontispiece to first edition of Leaves of Grass, 1855, when Whitman was 37.
Whitman favored the photo "because it is natural, honest, easy: as spontaneous as you are, as I am, this instant, as we talk together," and insisted on positioning the print so it faced his poem "Song of Myself" because the portrait "is involved as part of the poem."
To us, it's quintessential Whitman. Fully at home in his skin and his clothes, even as he's playing a the part of self-anointed national lyricist. And as he's singing to you, you might as well accept his offer to dance.
