making old art something new

If you’ve ever scoured stores/galleries/ for wall inspiration, you may have become overwhelmed or underwhelmed by the choices available. Poster art is a difficult thing to disguise on your wall as anything else… so why not just hang posters that you can be proud of?

The Library of Congress has online archives of many WPA posters from the 1930s-1950s… and the best part is that you can purchase a copy of any of them! Just find your print from the collection, write down the “reproduction number” and contact the Photoduplication Service. A color 16×20 reproduction is only $86-119 (depending on the the source).

There are many other collections of prints online as well, like Japanese Art, Stained Glass windows, Baseball Cards from 1887-1914, and 85,000 other posters from the all over the world.
