The international literary icon opens his eclectic closet: Here are
photographs of Murakami’s extensive and personal T-shirt collection,
accompanied by essays that reveal a side of the writer rarely seen by the
Haruki Murakami’s books have galvanized millions around the world. Many of
his fans know about his 10,000-vinyl-record collection, and his obsession with
running, but few have heard about a more intimate, and perhaps more unique,
passion: his T-shirt-collecting habit.
In Murakami T, the famously reclusive novelist shows us his T-shirts –
including gems found in bookshops, charity shops and record stores – from
those featuring whisky, animals, cars and superheroes, to souvenirs of marathons
and a Beach Boys concert in Honolulu, to the shirt that inspired the beloved
short story ‘Tony Takitani’. Accompanied by short, frank essays that have
been translated into English for the first time, these photographs reveal much
about Murakami’s multifaceted and wonderfully eccentric persona.
Standard Delivery Fees
Delivery – From just $4.50 per shipment
Delivery starts out at just $4.50 per shipment. As the size and weight of shipments increase, so does the freight price. To ensure every customer pays a fair price for delivery, an exact shipping price will be displayed to you in the checkout based on the size and weight of the products in your order and your delivery address.
If your order contains a mix of in stock and out of stock products, you will be presented with a choice in the Checkout to have your order sent in multiple shipments (so in stock items ship as soon as they're ready), or all items together in a single shipment (to save money). Using a single shipment will mean in stock items are held back until out of stock items are ready. e.g.
The following delivery options are presented in the Checkout as optional upgrades for your order.

Rural Delivery – $3.50 per shipment
If you live at a rural address you must select the Rural Delivery option in the Checkout for your item to be delivered.
