Item details

I like banned books, and I cannot lie.
You other readers can’t deny.
When you spend a little time
With a censored spine,
It makes you lose your mind.


(This listing is for a downloadable cross stitch chart in PDF format, which you will need to download and print prior to use. It is not for a finished project of any type, nor does it include any of the other supplies - such as fabric, floss, and needle – that you will need to stitch the design.)

Celebrate freedom of expression, embrace your love of beautiful, banned books, and offer a not-so-subtle nod to Sir Mix-a-Lot with this original (and oh-so-subversive) cross stitch design.

Featuring a small row of banned books in shades of black, blue, green, red, and yellow/gold, along with simple black lettering and understated black borders, it’s designed to fit most standard four-by-six frames when stitched on either 14-count Aida or 28-count linen.

Quick and easy to stitch, it would make a great addition to your home, office, or classroom décor or a great gift for your favorite librarian, teacher, or bibliophile.

The color images above shows how the design would look – in both the classic and contemporary colorways – using the fabric and floss specified in the pattern. (Obviously, you will receive color keys for both versions of the design.)

Your chart will be available for download in PDF format immediately after your payment is processed.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Have a wonderful day, and happy stitching!
