I love the print 'we are so good together' by Dylan Fareed. I would buy it for my husband. It would be a nice reminder to hang above our bed when we get into a late night argument. Remind us that it's not worth it because we are so good together! :)

Fiona said...

i wound by the first picture here. where i live we have winter and snow 6 months of the year and this picture would make me worm those months...

Judit Mihály said...

I really like the Ideal bookshelf series, so far this one's my favourite: http://www.20x200.com/artworks/4264-jane-mount-ideal-bookshelf-james-franco :)

Paula said...

Always amazing works at 20x200!
I'm a big fan of the bookshelf seires and would buy this one: http://www.20x200.com/artworks/3842-jane-mount-ideal-bookshelf-353-english-lit for my boyfriend, and avid reader!

funkia said...

Animal Locomotion: Plate 596 (Horse)!

Always so many beautiful prints, but I can't justify the extra cash...

erinshahan said...

Love them all!

I like the Bison Constellation by Alexander Beeching

Iris van der Heijden said...

The Artwork is just amazing, so many to choose from! The maps are very beautiful (of course the Amsterdam ones, because that's where we live) and the 'street views', because they are true storytellers. The collages are also very inspiring and the black and white photography is extraordinary.

As we have to make a choice, the 'Motel Bien Venido' by Walter Pickering is our pick. We love this kind of American loneliness and would love to have a reproduction of this print at our cozy, Dutch home.

ariadne said...

I love all the bookself prints and especially The English literature one as I have read all of these books at University while studying to be a teacher! I think I would keep that one to myself if I could or give it to my niece to inspire her to read some of those classics!

I want Praia Piquinia 1by Christian Chaize.. I miss summer!

brittany said...

I'd buy either: Old Recorder
by Todd McLellan or Old Camera
by Todd McLellan for my boyfriend because he is a collector of cameras and a builder of electronics, but if I was feeling selfish I'd buy Court of First Model Tenement House in New York, 1936 for me. I'm surprised I could narrow it down to 3!

Lisa said...

I would love to get Down and Away, by Don Hamerman for my Dad. He loves baseball and is due for a something to spruce up the house!

Thanks!

AUBREY @ Project Lovegood said...

I would buy the Ideal Bookshelf 364: NYC for a fellow reader friend of mine who lives in NYC. :)

I would choose 12 Bicycle Drawings by Christine Berrie to my sisters in law. They spent 3 years in Copenhagen and this just reminds me of their time there. Love it!

West Coast Girl, East Coast World said...

132 Birds at The American Museum of Natural History by Jason Polan - for my bird-loving/elementary school teacher mom

I would give it for Cristmas to my best friend!

Katie Rose said...

I love the Stamen Design Watercolor Chicago print. I have tons of friends and family who live in the city who would adore owning that! But I'd probably give it to my friend who moved to CO and misses Chicago a lot!

Lauren said...

I love the Joseph O. Holmes Prints. I would love to own one of his beautiful shots of NYC.

Thanks for the giveaway and Happy (American) Thanksgiving!

Lauren

I would gift myself Untitled 2
by Cecily Brown :)

biancapardini said...

I love Mark Ulriksen's piece, "Gone!". My father was born and raised in San Francisco and is an old time Giants fan. This painting artfully captures AT&T Park and I would love to surprise him with this! There is so much cheesy sports memorabilia out there and "Gone!" would be such a special kind of gift to give to such a die hard fan!

Lauren McPhillips said...

I've been eying the 'Vogue May 2010:pg 70 (List of Contributors)' abstract piece by Lauren DiCioccio for ages now, so it would be awesome to win a gift card to put towards it.

amocro said...

I love Jessica Snow's "Color Stack Series #5". I would gift it to my mother. It would be a lovely pop of color, to warm up her home this winter!

Vanessa Uttaro said...

My unselfish answer would be Down & Away (http://www.20x200.com/artworks/4086-don-hamerman-down-and-away), for my boyfriend. I think he would love it.

But for myself, I would really like Untitled #6 (http://www.20x200.com/artworks/4274-matthew-tischler-untitled-6). I can already picture it in my apartment! ;)

tessarh said...

I love Joe Kievitt's 7-sided and crossed. They would be perfect in the nursery!

Sally said...

I love Jenny Odell's collages, would have to be either 77 Waste Ponds or 104 Airplanes, both would be perfect for my husband, as he's a civil engineer who loves planes!

Lauren Darcy said...

I love My Butt by Helena Wurzel. It reminds me of tempera paintings my grandmother would make of us on the beach. I would give this print to my mother!

Jan said...

I love the Just Let It Go print by Kotama Bouabane. I love the simple color palette and the subtle message! Would be perfect in a studio or kitchen space.

Meggan said...

i love the ideal bookshelf:cooking print and the we are so good together print.

Penny said...

So much to choose from but would probably pick one of Trey Speegle's work (love!)

alessia said...

'Underwood' by Andrew Miller would be my way to donate to my boyfriend a part of his dream that is becoming, one day, a full-time writer. The fact that I simply ADORE the print itself doesn't hurt either..

Jessica Thiessen said...

It's so hard to pick just one! I like Zigzag1 by Valerie Roybal - it would be very hard to giveaway :)

EllenQ said...

I would buy the mandrill print by Amy Jean Porter for my friend Holly who studies primates.

-J said...

I would have to choose Untitled #6
by Jessica Bruah for my beloved. It seems like a piece that would make him happy.

Kelsey Loewen said...

I would buy "Arthur's Seat" by Laura Bell. Beautiful. Simple. Perfect for my living room!

Jessica Alpern said...

Vogue JUL07:pg145 (Ripeness is All) and Vanity Fair MAY08:pg269 (and, incredibly, looking not a day older)by Lauren DiCioccio are absolutely amazing. They are so unique and enticing that I would stare at them for HOURS.

Kristina said...

Emily said...

I love "Reindeer" by Lisa Congdon, and I have definitely been pining after "White Dews" by Taca Zhijie Sui for a while now. Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

Journeys of The Zoo said...

I hope I don't win (okay, just joking). I just spent 20 minutes on the site and having to pick one was near impossible. I like this one, http://www.20x200.com/artworks/2642-bert-teunissen-bg-0006-25a

Hope it's okay that I pinned you to my "I Am Canadian" board (http://pinterest.com/pin/71142869085188671/)

Besos, Sarah

Rebecca Gilgan said...

Unfortunately it's sold out, but I've had my eye on Ideal Bookshelf 102: Cooking for my sister, who's a chef, before. She and my family own either these books (like the Silver Spoon, Julia Child and Jamie O) or other books by these chefs (like Donna Hay) so it would be appropriate for her, my mum or even my other sister! And the colours are great too.

I love ICON by Michelle Muldrow. Her artworks speaks to my fear and awe at the vast American consumer landscape.

http://www.20x200.com/artworks/3254-michelle-muldrow-icon

My husband would love this abstract take of a modern issue.

Ideal Bookshelf: James Franco by Jane Mount for my best friend. She is a book hoarder and loves her book collection beyond belief. This print would be so perfect for her.

SarahJean said...

I would purchase Helena Wurzel's Standing at the Edge of the Water for my mom. I think she'd like the colors and the graphic style, but it also makes me think of trying new things... "testing the waters". A reminder to do what frightens you.

nellie said...

"vacationland" by William wegman for my brother who is making me so proud by going to college and excelling against everyone's expectations. He loves to fish and this would be a beautiful addition to his apartment reminding him in the dead of winter that summer fishing is just around the corner.

"Gosling Lake" by Kurt Tong for my husband- he has been wanting something to decorate our apartment to make it feel like "home" and think this piece of art is perfect- so peaceful!

tilly said...

I love the whole aerial-shots-of-a-beach genre that's cropped up, so I think my favorites are "Apres Grande 12" and "Praia Piquinia 16/08/11 13h26" by Christian Chaize.

kate cs said...

I'd buy View of Midtown Manhattan, circa 1939 by Alfred Eisenstaedt for my husband, who loves all things old New York.
