Friday Artist: LinePosters

June 5, 2015

While we were in New York City in April we stayed in the Meatpacking District in Lower Manhattan, our hotel was across the street from the Chelsea Market, and can I just tell you it’s AWESOME!! We were in and out of the market a couple of times and one of the times we were able to shop the stalls and booths of the artists and merchants, I made several purchases which I’ll be sharing with you in the weeks to come.  The first booth I visited was LinePosters, I bought two t-shirts because they’re easy to get home in a suitcase, but I fully intend to order some of their artwork.

LinePosters was started by friends Cayla Ferari and John Breznicky when they couldn’t find the transport inspired artwork they wanted for decorating their shared apartment. Cayla, a graphic artist, created an illustration of the NYC subway system that they hung on their wall, it received a lot of comments and compliments, they printed up more and began selling them and soon it became a full fledged business. They’ve added many more line maps and products to their inventory, I definitely want to add their subway maps to our art collection, as we travel and ride subways around the world I can turn to them and order a memory. So far, I can order NYC, London, Washington, D.C. and Paris. So many cities, so little time. Enjoy!!!

Most of the subway line maps have a choice in colors as far ink and paper color.

The maps are all standard size which makes framing easy and affordable.

I love their letterpress stationery, printed on 100% cotton Reich Savoy paper. LinePosters uses eco-friendly ink and comes with a matching envelope.

Biking is becoming more and more popular and LinePosters has expanded its inventory to include maps of bike paths. This t-shirt is of the Brooklyn, NY bike paths.

Check out LinePosters and see if they have some of your favorite cities in their choices. I love riding the subways in other cities, it’s much less expensive than cabs and you get to see a whole other side of the city your visiting.  Have a great day!!
