The house that once housed the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, is no longer the only place you can buy prints in America.
For a limited time, all of the prints on sale in the U.S. at major book retailers are now on sale exclusively at the Abacus Print House, a space in Manhattan’s Times Square where artists can purchase their prints for only $5 per print, $5 for a pair of prints, or $100 for a complete set.
In a world where bookstores have long been able to stock prints from all over the world, the Abaxas’ deal is unique.
But it’s also a pretty rare occurrence, and the prints can be difficult to track down.
In fact, the print shop’s first print was not even on sale for six months, making it a rarer-than-average deal for a large American bookstore.
“Abacus Printhouse is very lucky to have an incredible customer base,” says Andrew Hickey, Abacus’ director of media.
“We get a lot of people who buy prints for their art projects and have them on their shelves, and we just love seeing them, so we’re very happy about that.”
The shop’s website is filled with photos and videos of the printmaking process.
And when you click on the “Shop Now” link, you can find prints from the past week or so.
“I really like seeing people making prints,” Hickey says.
“You know, it’s just something that people do with their hands.
And it’s a really unique way to create a piece.”
Hickey’s shop’s printmaking studio, which is housed in a former warehouse, is in the heart of the Times Square district, in a building that has been a home to many of the nation’s most iconic booksellers and art museums.
But the Abys are a local business, with an eclectic mix of art and design.
“It’s like, ‘Hey, you know, this is what the neighborhood’s about, and this is how we do it,'” Hickey tells Newsweek.
“The art and the design is what people are into.
And we’re a very local shop.
We’re a little bit of an outsider.”
The Abacus prints have been available for a few years now, and Hickey was able to snag one of the company’s prints a few weeks ago, just before it sold out.
“There was just this rush to get it, and I wanted to make sure I got a good one, so I ordered it,” Haney says.
But just because the prints are only available for the next six weeks, that doesn’t mean that they’re perfect.
There are some obvious differences between the Abcs print shop and the typical print shop.
There’s a much more narrow, rectangular-shaped space for artists to place their prints.
The Abys have their own printing room, and it’s open to the public during normal business hours, not during the daytime, when most people walk around the store.
And they also have a larger outdoor space than many other large bookstores, with seating for up to 120 people.
“They’ve got a really good sense of what they want,” Higgs says of the Abces, who are also owned by the company that makes the printing books.
“And they’re not afraid to take chances.
They want to be innovative and they want to create their own world.
That’s what makes them unique.
They’ve done it with a lot more than just their printing business.”
And while some prints might look the same, Hickey believes that the difference in style can be noticeable, too.
“Sometimes you’re going to get a different aesthetic than someone who’s sitting in the same booth and making the same prints.
You’re going see things in a different way,” he says.
And that’s what the Abcy print shop is known for.
In addition to being an iconic print shop, the prints they make are also considered iconic by art collectors.
The collection is curated by artist John Larkin, who was a member of the museum’s founding team.
The prints Hickey has is also not only one of their most sought-after, but also among their most expensive.
Hickey explains that he and his wife had been shopping for a house on the Upper East Side, when they spotted a print that Larkin had commissioned.
“This was really, really special,” Higsley says.
The print he purchased was the “Big Bang Theory” poster, which was a fan-favorite from the show’s second season.
“That was the poster that everybody wanted to see,” Higgys says.
Larkin says that he always loved the show, and he wanted to put his stamp on the prints.
“As an artist, I wanted this poster to represent something, and that’s the poster I put on my wall, because it represents me as an artist and as a person,” Larkin said in an interview with
