I want to buy four or five interesting posters to fill up my blank walls in my new place and make it feel like 'mine'. I'd prefer to pick them out in person, rather than buying online. I'm especially interested in 20th century art (particularly abstract or semi-abstract), nature or urban photography, vintage maps and prints, and almost anything art deco or art nouveau. I'm also open to serendipitous discoveries that don't fit any of the above. Is there a place in New York that stocks a wide breadth of such things? [more inside]

I'm a huge fan of science fiction book cover art (especially the 50s through the 80s) and I like to use ideas from them to make posters for my band.
If you need examples: this
should explain what I'm looking for.
I'm wondering if there are existing resources for science fiction cover art or general science fiction art that mirrors this sort of style and substance? I especially need resources that are fair use, free to modify etc. etc.
We use these posters to advertise our shows at places which usually have a cover charge -- so I will need content that I can modify to use "commercially". [more inside]

I need posters for my walls, and have fallen in love with the concept art for Romeo and Juliet: The War
. (Art I am in love with: 1

Clyfford Still is my favorite artist ever. Unfortunately, I am having a very difficult time finding prints of his work, except for the same 2-3 that always show up on sites like art.com. I've been looking for years. Any suggestions? [more inside]

Where can I find this poster
from the movie 'Qui etes vous Polly Magoo?' without paying $900

With the joyous event of the election of a Rudd Labor Government here in Australia, I'm thinking of commemorating the win by taking the front page of a few newspapers and turning them into one of those hard wood posters you can buy from some music stores and poster shops. I am reliably informed that this process is called 'poster boarding' and from the few places I've looked at who do it professionally, this is going to set me back anywhere between $100 to $300 per poster.
So I'm wondering if this is something I could do myself. If so, what do I need to buy, what do I need to do (a step by step process would be nice) and, importantly, how easy/hard will this be for a first-timer to do?

My boyfriend got a cool promotion but he's keeping the same office so I want to celebrate by giving him a new framed poster. Please suggest some good places where I could order one online. (The poster, not the frame.) [more inside]

Movie posters normally carry images that look hand-drawn
. Even 'real' landscapes
, or people
, are frequently represented in this style. Why do studios do this? And are these images really drawn by hand, or are they just photoshopped photos? [more inside]

William Eggleston, man I love this guy. I've been to a couple of exhibitions of his work in London and thought they were great. His use of colour in documenting the South is astonishing. Where can I buy posters of his work?

We're looking for a cool poster of the periodic table. This
are considerations, but we'd rather have something more interesting. A poster of one of the early designs would be especially neato.
