We have a new book!

Introducing “Good Day / Bad Day”—the latest release from Warby Parker Press, our in-house publishing imprint based in New York City.

Introducing “Good Day / Bad Day”—the latest release from Warby Parker Press, our in-house publishing imprint based in New York City.

This witty book is part philosophy and part choose-your-own-adventure tale. And the best part: We’re giving the first purchasers of Spring 2017 frames a free copy for a limited-time (that means, like, right now).

There are also two other ways to get your hands on it:

1) Win it! We’re giving away free copies of the book (plus other good #swag like pencils, scratch-and-sniff stickers, and a tote bag), along with a pair of frames from our new Spring 2017 collection. All you have to do is show us what your good day (or bad day!) looks like with the hashtag #gooddaybadday and #contest. We’ll choose three lucky winners by this Friday, January 13. (Here are all the rules and terms of the contest.)

2) Buy it! “Good Day / Bad Day” will be available to purchase next week at warbyparker.com/editions (and in stores).

In the meantime, get excited by watching this infomercial video.

We’re gliding into 2017 with a set of flattering shapes and uncommon, of-the-moment details. Think: bold tortoises, blush tones, flat brows, and invigoratingly cool blues. These are glasses that get you out of bed the morning.

To Read: Who Did You Dodge at the Holiday Party?

They call it a holiday party, but it feels more like a feat of strength. Celebrate the season’s end with gifts for your most small-talk inept guests. They won’t mind if the books show up late.

Hello, Palo Alto!

We opened our first store in Palo Alto over the holidays, and we couldn’t be happier. The city has been top of mind for us for a while now, and we finally found the perfect spot to set up shop: a beautiful Spanish Colonial Revival building downtown on Ramona Street, built in 1927 and designed by local legend Birge Clark.

Inside, past a pair of arched entryways, customers will find all our go-to library-inspired design details (think: walnut shelving, terrazzo tiled flooring, and plush leather seating) plus a mural of original illustrations by artist Maira Kalman.
