I asked my dear and lovely friend, bibliophile and bookstagrammer extraordinaire, cofounder & moderator of @litonhst, Lupita Aquino (perhaps better known as @lupita.reads!) to curate a shelf of Latinx books everyone should read.

And then I made them into both a print and a mug.

(There are so many, of course! And I couldn't fit them all, so if you feel something is missing blame me, not Lupita!)

Starting in August 2023, 5% of the revenue from sales of this print will be donated to Latinx in Publishing, a non-profit that works to increase "the number of Latino/a/x in the publishing industry, and [promotes] literature by, for, and about Latino/a/x people."

Framing & Sizing Info

We partner with our friends at Simply Framed to offer custom framing in your choice of frame, plus an appropriately-sized white mat and UV-shielding plexiglass. (You can see more details in our FAQ.)

Please note, if you order a framed 8 x 10" print or painting, it will arrive in a frame that is about 11.75 x 13.75". An 11 x 14" print or painting will be in a 16.75 x 19.75" frame, and a 16 x 20" in a 22.75 x 26.75" frame.

As all the frames are custom fit to the prints, framing your work adds 2-3 weeks to your delivery time, but it is SO worth it, we promise.
