1200 posters

by Grace Bonney


I’ve really enjoyed how many fantastic, affordable art sites have popped up across the web over the past few years. Original artwork is amazing but isn’t necessarily in everyone’s budget, so these print/poster sites have been wonderful for opening the door to independent art in everyone’s homes. One of the newest members of the affordable art community is a website called 1200 Posters. On the 12th of every month for a full year (and hopefully more after that), 1200 posters releases a limited-edition print (100 are made) by an up-and-coming young artist. The styles are varied and the artists come from across the globe, but the goal is to unite artists and buyers alike through this print project. I love the idea of something new and exciting each month, especially when the artists highlighted are young and independent. November 2010’s poster was my favorite so far, but there are two other prints to choose from and many more coming up this year. Each print is only $20, so if you’re interested in adding to your home art collection, click here to check out the series and shop online. xo, grace
