If you're anything like us, you love a good visual inventory of stuff (see scenes from pretty much any Wes Anderson movie). There's something about a group of thingslaid out nicely that appeals to our sense of order and materialism. French graphic designer Alizée Lafon takes the concept and applies it to stuff from cult-favorite films and TV shows with these Movie & TV Kit Prints ($29-$360). The illustrated prints draw from Pulp Fiction, The Big Lebowski, Moonrise Kingdom, Mad Men, and more. Available in a range of sizes from 8" by 11" to 40" by 56".
Pay homage to some of your favorite dudes in a totally historical way with Replaceface Prints ($12-$150). These clever works of art put the faces of some of modernity's most recognizable guys — Bill Murray, Steve Jobs, Chuck Norris, Ricky Gervais, and David Bowie among them — into historical paintings of various generals and conquerors. We've linked to the art prints, which vary in size from roughly 8" x 9" to 28" x 32", but they also offer them framed, as stretched canvases, as stationery cards, as throw pillows, and as cases and skins for the iPhone and iPod touch.
Sure, there are apps you can download that will show you what stars are in the sky, but like photos, sometimes you just can't beat paper. Stellavie Stellar Map Prints (€70; roughly $95) are 50cm x 70cm prints — or about 20" by 27.5" — that show the constellations and stars seen in either the northern or southern skies. Hand-printed with custom-mixed inks, hand-numbered and -signed, and available in four colorways — gold on white, silver on black, gold on black, or white on blue — they make a great addition to any room that also plays host to a telescope.
Perfect for a nautical-themed office, den, or beach house, these Below The Boat Wood Charts ($130-$300) let you celebrate your favorite bodies of water in exquisite detail. Laser cut and hand crafted, each bathymetric chart is made from sheets of Baltic birch that are glued together to create visual depth, with certain layers colored blue, and the whole thing laid inside a custom solid-wood frame and protected by a sheet of Plexiglass. Whether you're pining for the waters of Cape Cod, San Francisco Bay, or the Florida Keys, they've got a chart for you. [Scouted by Chris]
Feeling especially patriotic today? We can't blame you. Celebrate this goodwill by ordering up a few of these Draplin State Posters ($30). Printed on thick, uncoated poster stock, these 18" x 24" prints are a great way to show your state pride, and also make a terrific gift for the homesick among us. Oh, and each one is hand numbered by Aaron James Draplin himself, when he's not busy giving awesome speeches.
