athenaeum press

athenaeum press, out of salt lake city, is offering some really interesting limited edition letterpress-printed pieces all coming out of their Urban Typography Project. all prints are signed and numbered and the two i have featured in this post {SAF and R} are priced at $75. take a peek at all of their very nice letterpress work for sale right here.

hable construction

i was excited to see recently that hable construction was now offering stretched canvases of their fantastic fabrics as a web exclusive. they offer 3 sizes: 10 x 10" = $45 / 10 x 20" = $85 / 30 x 30" = $105. i think the largest size is such a great deal if you have $100 and a space where you need something bold but can't quite commit to artwork. check out their fabric choices online here.


pushmepullyou is a wonderful design studio run by eleanor grosch out of philadelphia. i really dig the simplicity of the designs she offers as art prints, all sold in limited edition for $20, and especially my favorites the giraffe, doves & owl prints {featured in this post}. you should also take a look at her rock posters {michelle malone poster featured below}, all selling for $20 each, right here.


etsy is such a great place to find handmade goods. i stumbled upon the drinkabutter shop and was charmed by these small original oil paintings done in a sort of striped down modern folk style. they are each one-of-a-kind, painted on canvas board and signed on the back. my favorites were ginko leaf {8 x 10" / $35} and maple key {8 x 10" / $60} as featured in this post. check them all out right here.

my little underground

christopher david ryan, a graphic artist out of brooklyn, has just opened a new online shop, my little underground, where he sells his gorgeous designs as prints ... i think i am going to have to take a moment to gush over this ... it really makes my heart beat!

leafy mysteries
{pictured above} is a series of 15 designs and the biggest question i have is ... which ones will you choose? i can see hanging at least 3 in a row over a couch or a bed OR maybe using 7 to 9 and hanging them along a long hallway. i can also see a few of them in a grouping with some natural elements around like pressed leaves or bowls of rocks. either way they are seriously stunning and the colors ... love! leafy mysteries, inspired by paul weller's song of the same name, are 11 x 17" digital prints on matte paper and cost $20 each. check them out right here.

a simple observation of the harmony between the Earth and the sea of stars in which it floats. CDR also offers his dreamy harmonies prints {no. 7 pictured above}, 7 different designs in all, in 12 x 12" digital prints on matte paper for $15 each. i was thinking 4 or 6 would be great framed as squares making up a square on the wall and hanging above your turntables. or for just over $100 you can take all 7 designs now and keep them tucked away for holiday gift-giving. take a closer look at the harmonies prints here.

a Brooklyn brownstone stripped down to a single feature and then repeated, creating it's own rhythm... becoming something to look at rather than just look through. the largest pieces that CDR offers are his windows prints no. 1 & no. 2 {pictured above}. these two beautiful designs are printed on matte paper and are sized at 18 x 24". i can see centering windows no. 1 and flanking it on either side with windows no. 2 {as i did in this post}. what a statement and what truly unique art! you can check out these, and even more of his charming work, at my little underground. enjoy!

penelope dullaghan poster

i started my crush on penelope dullaghan's beautiful illustration work a few years ago now. i always enjoy her prints and currently she has one to offer in her shop. the birds on a wire poster is an 11 x 17" signed digital print for $35 {includes shipping}. i think the subtle blue and black combo would warm up any room. check it out right here.

cricket press art prints

Cricket Press is a tiny little operation geared towards designing and hand printing silk-screened posters for music events, art shows, propaganda, and basically anything you'd want to make a poster for. We especially love doing gig posters for punk, indie-rock, jazz and improvised music events. Reason being, this is just the music we love, and the people we love to work with.

i really like how cricket press describes themselves {quoted above} on their website; simple & honest. and digging into their site, this heart girl print, by sara turner {one half of cricket press} really caught my eye. the silkscreened heart girl art print is 14 x 23" and costs $25. but that is not all they have to offer ... check out all of their art prints right here and all of their posters here.


i think i could build an entire kids room around this charming susie ghahremani tugboat print. the print is on eggshell-finished archival paper and measures 7-1/2 x 5" {cost = $25}. boygirlparty is the website that houses the work of ghahremani and she has many sweet items in her shop. i also like the idea of tacking up or framing her witty postcard sets or brightly designed cards.

the decoder ring

hi all. happy monday! more silkscreened poster love today ... check out the decoder ring's selection of really nice posters for sale right here. out of austin, the decoder ring has done work for bands like modest mouse, wilco and spoon {prints featured in this post are linked by clicking on the band name}. enjoy their posters shop {most posters: $25} online by clicking here.
