A face you probably haven't seen on a t-shirt before

Rosalind Franklin t-shirt

How cool is this t-shirt, which I got at Canzine today? At the centre is Rosalind Franklin, whose work was crucial to the discovery of the structure of DNA but who was overshadowed by Watson and Crick. To the right is her famous Photo 51; Watson and Crick appear in the lower left corner.

The shirt was made by Kate Sage and sold to me by Peter Stevens, who says this image can be silkscreened onto just about anything you like: a t-shirt, sweatshirt, tote bag, whatever. Kate and Peter have a lot of other cool designs, too, featuring the likes of Billie Holliday, Emma Goldman, Richard Feynmann, Scott McCloud and Lynda Barry. E-mail elephantempire@gmail.com if you're curious.

Update: You can see all the stencil designs on the Elephant Empire website!
