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 love these older pics of victory garden posters (e.g.). I was wondering if anyone knew if they were out in the public domain? I'd like to use them for a Tumblr/blog post, but don't want to start ripping folks off willy nilly.
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".

I'm looking for posters to hang on my walls, and I would like to find some online with social justice quotes and themes. I'd prefer if the posters were just quotes in nice font, but I'm having trouble finding such a thing. [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, 2, 3.) However, I can't have it. Any ideas on where to find similar art, in poster-printable quality? [more inside]

Help me settle a long-running debate by identifying which horror movie had the following poster: A night scene, outdoors, I think moonlit. Hand drawn. In the centre of the poster a girl is running away from the viewer, down a path between two stone walls. Emerging from the walls on both sides are hands which are grabbing out at her. I last saw it around 1986. Any ideas?
I need a map to some maps: What is the name of the collection/series of beautiful maps of New York City, over time, and where might I find it? [more inside]
I have a bunch of pieces of art that I'm not displaying, but I'm not sure how I should be storing them. What's the best way to protect and preserve them (preferably without spending a zillion dollars)? [more inside]

Anyone know of any good large-format (5 foot by 3 foot poster) printers in the Portland, Oregon area? I've been burned by the wrath of Kinko's too many times and I need it within 48 hours. I know the right outfit could do it in just a few minutes, and I don't care what it costs. [more inside]
