Great Gift Ideas from GuyAitchison.com!
Friday December 13, 2013
With just 4 days left before the cutoff date for guaranteed Christmas shipping in the US, we wanted to show you a few items that are excellent holiday gifts for both artists and art fans. We have a few great books in our store that are so chock-full of visual material that you can open them up again and again and always find something new.
The most recent release is Antennae Of Inspiration, a collection of tattoos and other artwork in a broad range of media including an amazing array of paintings, drawings and multi-media work. The theme of this book is insects and other tiny creatures, and includes work from hundreds of artists from all over the world. Hardcover, 480 pages.
Next is Antennae's sister project, 8 Arms Of Inspiration. It's a visual exploration of the octopus- along with other tentacled forms- which has always been a favorite motif among tattoo collectors. 8 Arms shows just how far artists were able to run with imaginative interpretations on the octopus theme, with nearly a thousand images by 440 artists in a heavy duty hardcover volume.
Then comes Tattoo Extremities, a fun collection of tattoo work on heads, necks, hands, and feet. These are parts of the body that somehow invite a particularly bold and expressive kind of tattooing, and over the course of 240 pages you'll see examples from an extensive list of artists who work in all different styles.
We also have a few nice budget-priced items, such as Tattoo World, which contains over 1000 images by 125 artists from all styles and traditions, including work from Guy and Michele. It's a big thick shiny book with a cool die-cut hardcover, and a great gift.
Finally there's Pint Sized Paintings, a collection of very small (2x3") paintings done by over 120 different tattoo artists. The idea of the project was to see what artists would do with such a small canvas, and the result is something you'll have to see to believe. It's a fun little book with a lot of great work, and an affordable stocking-stuffer.
We also have a few discounted gift packs if you need to fill things out a bit- take a look. We hope to help make your holiday shopping a bit easier with these great gift items. Guaranteed shipping before Christmas on all US orders received by December 17th.
Thanks, and have a great holiday season!
