Matchbook: where bikinis meet their match

New Tumblr blog matches bikinis and books

New Tumblr blog Matchbook.nu by Kate Imbach is set to revolutionise the way we pack for our holidays.

The Matchbook.nu concept is simple yet clever: Imbach matches swimsuits with their equivalent book cover, and the results are surprisingly cool.

Whether it’s pairing Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment with the Trinity swimsuit by Chromat or Yann Martel’s The Life of Pi with men’s swimming trunks by EUROPANN, Imbach’s book-swimsuit duos are as diverse as they are compatible.

Each match is made by hand, and, for an extra bit of literary weight, Imbach even includes the first sentence of each book and details on the designer of the cover art.

Although it might add an extra dilemma to what to wear and read on holiday, we couldn’t agree more with Imbach when she says: “We should have been doing this all along, am I right?”
