Ryan Putnam Prints
I’ve always admired Ryan’s work. He is super prolific and his shop is full of unique, high quality and affordable prints. Check out his shop and also his Do Better shop that donates proceeds to different causes.
Zines from The Unofficial Press
Small, self published and limited edition works of design, writing, illustration, meanderings– better known as zines, are a great way to own unique, creative works of art. Quality can differ widely but if you dig around a bit it’s possible to find a one-of-a-kind gift. For the non-diggers, check out The Unofficial Press, which is a side project of Aggie Toppins, the Associate Head of the Art Department at The University of Tennessee Chattanooga.
