New Stuff This Week

2016 Dollhouse Gig Posters (Starshaped Press) $85.00 - Tiny gig posters for dollhouses! The idea stems from Starshaped Press wanting to create tiny works of art from the smallest pieces in their metal type collection as well as their longtime passion for music. Operating like an old school record club, subscribers received a new 2x3" poster each month for a year featuring a different musical style (12 in all). Here’s the reel-shaped box which houses all of the posters.
But wait... there's more! It includes a flexi disk from John and Mark of The Coctails, temp tatts from Dan Grzeca, and a retro futuristic letterpress print from P22 Analog!
