We all have a bookworm in our life. You know, the one who never goes anywhere without their current reading material and who accessorizes in a way that anyone in eyeshot can tell they have a deep affection for the written word. For me, this person is my mother. Maybe this person is your friend or sibling. Perhaps it is you! Whomever the bookworm is in your life, the Yoshi Well Read Collection makes an excellent gift. This curated collection of leather accessories includes wallets, keychains, passport holders, and glasses cases that feature timeless classic stories prominently, making it known to all passersby that you are well-read.
Well Read by Yoshi: The Collections
The Yoshi Well Read Collection boasts four genre-themed styles — Bookworm (various classic titles, two sub-styles to choose from), Sci-Fi, Shakespeare, and Travel.
Each style features book spines of classic novels set against a solid background.
The classic Bookworm options feature books like Don Quixote and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, among others, with your choice of a brown or yellow leather background.
The Shakespeare collection products have Macbeth, Othello, Romeo & Juliet, Julius Ceasar, Twelfth Night spines, topped with the skull from Macbeth on black leather.
Are you more of a Sci-Fi fan? Travel book fan? Must-haves like 2001: A Space Odessey and Robinson Crusoe adorn black and brown leather accessories, respectively.
The Finer Details
Okay, we talked about collections and looks, but what about the guts? Each accessory, from keyrings to cardholders, is crafted with high-quality hand-crafted leather and colorful spine appliques.
Each cardholder has two clear windows for bus passes and travel cards with an additional outer pocket for storage. The bi-fold wallets have RFID protection — a security must-have, in our opinion — space for five credit cards, a zippered coin pocket, and two slip pockets, meaning you have room for all your day-to-day needs.
Rounding out the collection are compact card holders for those who prefer a minimalist wallet, a Shakespeare-themed glasses case, and keychains with a split metal keyring that’s spacious enough to accommodate work keys, house keys, and more.
