Where Should I Put My New Print? January 16 2014, 0 Comments


Reagan considers putting 'Koo Koo The Bird Girl' in his foyer

Our friends, Reagan Morris and Michael Fitzgerald, creators of the wickedly funny Clayboys products, love art and design and together have created a gorgeous home. Everywhere you look are mesmerizing displays reflecting Reagan's interests in collecting unusual objects.

We were flattered when they said they loved our "Sideshow Stars" and "Anatomy Lessons" Print Collections. Together we played around with putting their favorite prints in different places throughout their house. The prints immediately fit in and made themselves right at home!


Or maybe instead, one of the "Anatomy Lessons" prints - which do you like better?


Reagan loves antique bottles and  "Anatomy Lesson 1" looks great with this display in Guest Bathroom.

6 Nude Male Photos are More Art than Science November 06 2013, 0 Comments


from The Anatomy Lessons Collection on projectB.com

A 19th-century photographic invention commonly used for educational purposes comes alive today in this exceedingly rare group of images made from glass lantern slides. The slides, made around 1880, were probably used in medical schools to demonstrate muscle groups and other aspects of male anatomy. Today, the photographs strike us as unusual nude studies, more art than science.  Limited edition prints of these beautiful images are available exclusively at PROJECT B.

A Gorgeous Paper Moon (Photograph)! October 14 2013, 0 Comments

At PROJECT B we love real photo postcards and paper moons! The paper moon above is exceptional because the photographer created a souvenir of a man astride the moon floating above a city street in Saskatchwan, Canada. Anyone have a souvenir paper moon photograph like this one? 


The Northern Lights August 25 2013, 0 Comments

Setting up a camera in the middle of a dirt road in Fairbanks, Alaska, an unknown photographer, c.1940, captures this exquisite long-exposure view of the aurora borealis—the northern lights. The awe inspired by this apparition is palpable, even now.

Available in three sizes from Project B.


Hand Painted Photo Fun July 24 2013, 1 Comment

Collection of Barbara Levine / PROJECT B

With a nod to summer fun is this 1950s hand painted photograph of La Jolla beach in California. Since the beginning of photography in the 1800s, professional and amateur photographers have experimented with hand painting to make their photographs appear more realistic. Hand coloring was a time consuming process resulting in unique hand-made images. Can you imagine this photograph big and hanging on your wall? We would love to know what you think!


Wearable Photographs July 05 2013, 0 Comments

 

Every thought about wearing photographs of people you love or like the look of? Almost as soon as photography was invented people made jewelry with their personal photos. From Victorian mourning brooches, rings and cufflinks to buttons promoting political candidates, photo jewelry came in all sizes and shapes. Especially popular in the 1920s and 30s was the pinback photo button. From the Project B rare originals collection is this hand colored photograph of a young girl in the 1920s that was made into a photo button. It measures 1 3/4 x 1", has a pin on the back and is especially charming (we love her glasses!). How would you wear your photographs?!

We're finally ready to beta test the site. That means it's supposed to work on your desktop and mobile device! Over the next few weeks we'll be doing some tweaks and adjustments to make it better before our official launch next month. If you have any problems, questions, or suggestions related to the site we'd really appreciate your feedback.

Meanwhile, we've been working on the Japanese Noir series, getting the proofs perfect before we're ready to print big! 


Embossing Like It's 1899 April 09 2013, 0 Comments

We're delighted with our new cast iron embosser (circa 1900). It comes to us fully refurbished with a custom brass "B" emboss, thanks to our friends at Made To Order in Albuquerque. You can see it's a work of art itself, and the emboss is both subtle and powerful. Just the thing to distinguish your print with our seal of authenticity.
