That chiseled jawline; the flowing, blonde locks; an accent that melts butter…. It must be Fabio!
The statuesque Italian model was ubiquitous in the 1990s, appearing on the covers of more than 1,300 romance novels, serving as the spokesperson for I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!, and releasing his own album Fabio After Dark, which features the heartthrob expounding on his philosophy of love. He even appeared on an American Library Association Celebrity READ poster, holding a copy of Peter Benchley’s novel, Jaws (naturally). For a generation, Fabio was synonymous with love and passion. And now you can show the world how much you love Fabio—and books, too.
I Love Libraries’s favorite literary clothing aficionados Out of Print are releasing t-shirts emblazoned with Fabio’s READ poster. Available in unisex and women’s sizes, these shirts are the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. What better way to tell the special person in your life that you really care about them than by giving them the gift of Fabio—on a shirt, of course!
Out of Print’s Fabio READ shirts will be available February 4. Be sure to check out the other READ shirts and accessories available from Out of Print, too!
