After a busy-busy and productive summer at the shore, we’re back in Brooklyn and gearing up for a great fall!
See Brooklyn, our silkscreen poster series celebrating the landmarks of the nation’s fourth largest city – yes, that’s Brooklyn, with 2.5 million people! – is now available at Annie’s Blue Ribbon General Store in Park Slope.
A little backstory on the series: with Brooklyn’s architecture largely overshadowed by the icons that reside across the river, we set out to give some of these exceptional Brooklyn landmarks and buildings their proper due. We drew inspiration from a lot of the Brit Rail and WPA travel poster work of the 1920s and ‘30s, and “See Brooklyn” is our contribution to the category, contemporized for a new century.
Four prints are now available – DUMBO, featuring the engineering marvel that is the Brooklyn Bridge; the art moderne masterpiece of the Central Library at Grand Army Plaza; the deco Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower, long the tallest building in Brooklyn; and LaGuardia Hall, an exceptional example of the Colonial Revival common to the 1930s located on Brooklyn College’s campus.
They have color, personality and will make any dark apartment happy.
We hope to design and release more prints as these initial four pieces sell. If you have ideas for upcoming prints, please let us know.
Annie’s Blue Ribbon General Store is located at 232 5th Ave in Park Slope, beside Dizzy’s Finer Diner at 5th Ave and President St.
