taking the shirt off your back

While the web is certainly the space where most people are experimenting with new forms of journalism, it's always nice to see a new idea take place back in the physical world as well.

It doesn't get much more physical than Swedish magazine T-Post, which prints a news story on the inside of a T-shirt, then asks an artist to interpret the story for the art on the front of the shirt. It's a brilliant idea, one that connects the culture of shirt collectors with ideas weightier than the latest Threadless release.
