It was somewhere in my mid-twenties that I vowed to never again buy a cheesy reproduction; adults collected art, not dog-eared posters. Of course, it didn’t occur to me that most work I would consider “art,” would probably be far too dear for my pocketbook. And while I often fell in love with work I saw in magazines and online, there was no chance of finding out how to buy a print for myself.
I wish I had then to what I have access to now: Print Society. It’s like Etsy, but exclusively for artists and buyers focused on prints. They don’t actually sell anything though; they just link to the places that do. Prices run from a few dollars (really) well into the hundreds and beyond.
There’s plenty of fine art suitable for grown-up decor, like the Julianne Swartz photo, above, but you might also find something for the kids’ room, like the cool 50 celebrity robots letterpress print, right.
