The Remakable Science Fiction of Cordwainer Smith

Cordwainer Smith T-shirts and More


There are many pithy quotes from Cordwainer Smith stories that make great t-shirts.

Here are just a few that I have designed so far.

Each design is available on about 50 different items: a wide variety of t-shirts, for men and women of all sizes, juniors, children... even babies and dogs!

These are in my Cafepress Cordwainer Smith t-shirt shop. Clicking on the link, or on any of these images, takes you to the page showing all the designs I've done up till now. From there, you can see what items the design is on. If you decide to order, Cafepress handles the whole deal, credit cards, manufacturing, and shipping worldwide, very promptly. They offer money-back satisfaction as well, even though these are custom-printed items. I've bought a lot of from them and been happy with the quality.


no time for fear tshirtI have more designs underway, but when I realized I was spending more time playing around in Photoshop Elements than finishing up this website, I decided to switch my priorities! But there will be more later. And if you have a favorite short quote that you think would be a good t-shirt, do let me know via the contact page. I'm also working on some interesting t-shirts using some of the photos I have of Cordwainer Smith / Paul  Linebarger.

And here is the original t-shirt design. Many thanks to volunteer Bob Shipp of Florida for his graphics work on this, long before I became enamored of Photoshop Elements! The Chinese characters are CS's name in Chinese and translate as "Forest of Incandescent Bliss."
