Mr. Jefferson surrounded himself with books. In fact, it is estimated that he kept approximately 1,000 books here at Poplar Forest. While we may not be able to cozy up with a volume of Voltaire in Mr. Jefferson’s parlor, we can announce our mutual love of the written word with the newest museum shop tote bag. Printed with the quote “I cannot live without books…”—an excerpt from a letter Jefferson wrote to John Adams on June 10, 1815—this stylish tote would doubtless find favor with these esteemed Founding Fathers 200 years later.
Made of woven polyester with durable 28″ straps, this bag has a top zipper and measures 14.5″ x 14.5″ x 4″.
Available in black with either light blue, forest green or lime green front
