Baltimore is full of great art galleries and museums, but simply walking into the coffee shop usually affords quite a bit of eye candy as well. Bulletin boards and telephone poles regularly showcase illustrations and graphic design by some of our finest local artists with stunning posters advertising the concerts, events, and festivals that make Baltimore such a great place to live. Well, Post Typography are the folks we have to thank for some of the flat out coolest designs in town, and on December 7th, they’re opening their studio for a one-day-only sale of prints and merchandise—perfect for anyone looking for unique, super-cool (and totally affordable) gifts.
The sale takes place this Saturday, December 7 from 12:00 – 5:00 PM. It will feature work (that is, limited edition posters, prints, and artwork) from the past eleven years. Still kicking yourself for not saving a poster from that show you went to way back in the day? You just might be able to score one here. Some highlights include screenprinted posters for Dan Deacon, Lightning Bolt, and Built to Spill and Artscape, John Hopkins and Maryland film festival posters. And as though you needed another reason to swing by, proceeds from the sale will go to Wide Angle Youth Media, a non-profit organization that provides Baltimore youth with media education to tell their own stories and become engaged with their communities. Does gift shopping get any better than this?
The Post Typography studio sale will be held at 3 W 23rd Street in Baltimore on Saturday, December 7 from 12:00 – 5:00 PM. For more information, visit www.posttypography.com
