5+5: Larissa Leclair. Photo Bookworm. Rockstar Realtor. July 15 2017

In our newest 5+5 interview we hit up art-supporting superwoman Larissa Leclair, whose triumphs in and out of the art world make most of us wonder if we’ve been seriously slacking off. For one, Leclair founded the Indie Photobook Library, a jaw-dropping collection (now in the safe-keeping of Yale University) that includes over 2,000 photobooks from around the world. She’s also an accomplished lecturer, award-winner, contributor to TIME Magazine’s “Best Photobooks of the Year”, vocal proponent of self-publishing photobooks and champion of emerging artists, and an avid art collector. Her newest venture? Redefining real estate as a brilliant realtor. Leclair’s endeavoring attitude even came across in her responses, a few of which you can peep below—thoughtful, poetic, and enthusiastic. This 5+5 feature is one you won’t wanna skim!  – Team 20x200

Boardwalk Glory: Vintage Ride + Old School Arcade c/o John Margolies July 11 2017

Arcade by John Margolies
8"x10" ($24) | 11"x14" ($60) | 16"x20" ($240) | 24"x30" ($800)

Disco Star by John Margolies
8"x10" ($24) | 11"x14" ($60) | 16"x20" ($240) | 24"x30" ($800)

The boardwalk brings to mind the best of stress-free summer antics: roller coasters, pinball, bumper cars, funnel cake. And of course, the beach. Whether you’re at Coney Island or Santa Cruz, the boardwalk is built-in beach fun (for those who require a little something else on top of the waves, sand and sun). ‘Wholesome’ is a word for the extracurriculars here—a stationary epicenter of crowd-pleasing amusement that’s made all the better by an ocean view. ‘Timeless’ also rings true, especially when you get a look at the two John Margolies photographs that make up today’s extra-special double edition release. You might mistake the locale as a present-day pier, but these images are straight outta the 1970s...

Art Loves Lit! Print + Book Pairings by Novelist Emma Fusco-Straub July 08 2017

What happens when your fave neighborhood bookstore closes, leaving a wistful, once word-filled absence in its wake? Open your own!

And we’re awfully glad she did—though Books Are Magic opened just this past May, this superlative independent bookstore has already established itself as a local hotspot, fit for hardcore book lovers and dabblers alike, with an events program that’s killing the game (and they’re just getting started!)...

Click List: What We’re Oohing Over Post-Fireworks July 06 2017

Few things are capable of rallying us out of a sweet, sweet, BBQ and sunshine-induced stupor. And don’t say "cold shower" ‘cause we tried it and it just made us miss the pool. Thankfully, the interwebs is here to help. Some light mining of our overflowing inboxes and a mild social media sesh reminded us of some of the awesome things other people are up to—and what’s more motivating than keeping up with the cool kids? Besides, we can eat more watermelon in our swimsuits while avoiding our responsibilities as soon as the weekend rolls around... – Team 20x200

You *are* beautiful and this Kickstarter wants to spell that out unequivocally. 20x200 friend + Art for Everyone enthusiast Matthew Hoffman is behind these uplifting installations. If you want one in your city, help fund his 50 state adventure

Jens Ochlich’s Star-Spangled Stunner: “American Mobile Home” June 27 2017

American Mobile Home by Jens Ochlich
Jens Ochlich caught sight of this star-spangled stunner while en route up the interstate in San Diego, CA. Hunting it down behind some warehouses, he found the vehicle parked between a number of other RVs—all permanent dwellings. He'd taken note of the new crops of mobile homes popping up along the railroad tracks near his own house, keeping an eye out for the four-wheeled residences, but this particular trailer really captured the photographer’s attention. Needless to say, it also snagged ours. Somewhere between peppy and strangely forlorn, timeless, even surreal, Ochlich's 20x200 debut demanded its spot in our summer art collection...

We Sea You: Prettify Your Walls with This Painted Beach Scene June 20 2017

Beach scene by R.G. Harper Pennington
Hard to believe it’s still technically spring given the sweltering weather we’ve been having in NYC, but it’s true: tomorrow is the first official day of summer. Our toes are exposed, our farmer’s markets are full of tomatoes, and our ACs are cranking. All that’s left is to give our walls a li’l seasonal upgrade courtesy of today’s new release—a summery seaside Vintage Edition from 19th century painter R.G. Harper Pennington...

5+5: Anjelika Temple. Creative Dynamo. DIY Diva. Fly Mama. June 17 2017

In today's 5+5 we feature the exuberant and entrepreneurial Anjelika Temple, a 20x200 alum whose life and career has blossomed magnificently since her tenure with us back in the day. (As a nearly ten-year-old (!!!) company, “back in the day” really means something.) Anyone who follows her on Instagram knows: Anj makes California living look real good. By day she hustles her heart out as Brit + Co’s founding creative director. By night—and, we’ve gathered, many a jam-packed weekend day—she and her (adorable!) fam partake in all the goodness the Bay Area has to offer. Up now, she shares her arty predilections and favorite 20x200 editions with us. Read on for her selects!  – Jen Bekman

Click List: What's Saving Us From News Fatigue June 15 2017

Kinda wanna bury your head in the sand this week? We don't blame you, but how 'bout you turn your attention to some of the cool stuff going on outside the 24-hr news cycle instead. Like how HGTV named us one of the best web destinations for decking your walls with art. Or like any of these awesome things that don't involve us having a super-indulgent Sally Field moment... – Team 20x200  

We felt like swinging by this "fauxdega" art installation by British textile artist Lucy Sparrow, selling a bodega's-worth of felt creations. 8 'Til Late will be on view the Standard High Line in NYC until June 30th, so stop by and stock up while you still can.
