Jeff Carvalho at Selectism crushes it... he found this canvas book bag (literally a bag for transporting books) that could do double duty as a weekender bag. BPL style. Reblogging below;
More than 100 years ago, the workers of the Boston Public Library figured out that the best way to ferry books between the branches was in this deep, heavy-duty bag, one in each hand to balance the load. Each is capable of holding 27 pounds. Buy it for $38.
If you want more info, read here about how the bags have double canvas bottoms as a requirement, and about the inscription stencilled inside...
