Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
If you've bothered to wait in the line of tourists outside of the Marc by Marc Jacobs Accessories shop on Bleecker Street in the West Village recently, you'd notice a few new products floating around once you were allowed inside.
In addition to the usual keychains, $30 T-shirts and neon studded belts that can always be found there, a few "Bookmarc"-branded products are slowly seeping in. @psimadethis stopped by on Friday and found the colored pencils above, and we noticed some book covers and pencil cases last week.
Could this be for the coming MJ Bookmarc-named bookshop across the street, due to open this winter in the old Biography Bookshop space? All signs point to yes. But for now, you could just outfit your little cousins with the hippest little set of colored pencils in class.
