The book is absolutely packed with great designs and stories of the designs the artists, Threadless' history and everything you could possibly want to see. They've obviously spent a huge amount of time collecting the information and writing the book, compared to many other tee books this is actually readable and will take a fair few hours compared to the half hour of some others. The book is listed chronologically documenting the history of Threadless but this is broken up with a huge collection of images of their tees each with a small amount of information and some with more. Also many of the more popular designers have their own section in the book about their Threadless and other designs and also companies such as Glennz that have almost come out of Threadless. For me this book hits exactly what you want out of a tee book rather than just a collection of images of nice shirts the emphasis is on the story telling aspect be that of the company the designer or the story told by the design itself.

Overall I am extremely impressed and would say if you are going to own one book about t-shirts this should certainly be it (if two it should be this and the Maki book!)

This book is on the inspiring success story of Threadless, told chronologically through its founders and the designers who submitted T-shirt art on the site.

It's really interesting to read about the stuff that happens behind the scenes, the highs and lows of starting a company, the reaction of the community, and basically just building something big from small through trial and error. You also get to see how T-shirt printing from Threadless has evolved over the years with new technology in printing. If you're interested in entrepreneurial stories, this book is for you.

On Threadless, the community votes on the T-shirt designs they like. In this book, the selection features not just the highly rated ones, but also the badly rates ones as well, some of which are included because they are highly controversial.

Most of the designs are pretty cool, and you get to see a wide spectrum of work and quality. Through the ratings, you can see that the highly rated ones have great concept and makes use of the T-shirt medium really well. I saw one titled Three Keyboard Cat Moon created as a spoof to the Three Wolf Moon T-shirt on Amazon. Some inclusion left me scratching my head though.

The story of Threadless is inspiring. Highly recommended for designers and the entrepreneurial types.

I've been involved in threadless for a few years now, and bought this book about six months ago I think. It's really interesting to see the history of the company and read what some of the designers have to say about threadless. It is crammed full of awesome designs and is really nicely printed. It is inspiring to read how the company started out and got to where it is now.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to anyone, you need to own a copy.

I've been first told about Threadless back in 2005 and became a fan ever since. There is where I saw the most brilliant designs and always wondered "how did they do it". Everything is in the book, how they started with a hobby, how they grew a community around it, how it became a successful business model. I did enjoy reading the book and I'm happy to have it in my library.

The book is really lovely and will inspire me to create lots of new original designs for my own work. It's got a nice layout and seems to be packed with lots of designs. However the book itself seems to have been bent in half at some stage so that's what makes this a 3 star review rather than a 4 star.

Bought as a gift for tshirt design mad hubby, he loved it and inspired him to start a kick starter project to do a book showcasing other t shirt designs. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1465282247/vigilantees-a-showcase-book-of-tshirt-design-and-d?ref=discovery

This book is more like an inspiration book for designers than something that explains Threadless history; and that's what I bought it so I'm a little dissapointed. But it's great for designers :)
