It’s not always clear what Amazon carries when it comes to the things-to-hang-on-your-wall department. (There’s a lot of stuff like this.) But if you know what to search for and where to look, there are actually some fabulous posters and prints — 25 of which we’ve gathered below.
Photographer O. Winston Link spent a good part of the late 1950s traveling through small southern towns, documenting the steam engine’s last hurrah and the major role it played in people’s lives. This image is of a group of friends hanging out by a swimming pool as a train zooms by, and it feels so ’50s.
Foreign versions of American movie posters are always fun. Auntie Mame, the classic Rosalind Russell movie-musical, gets the French poster treatment here.
Malditos. Burgeses. Enamorados. A Spanish poster for the cult Whit Stillman film.
Designed by Anna Huskowska, this Polish Dumbo poster would be perfect for a kid’s bedroom.
We were obsessed with/terrified by this German movie about a 13-year-old heroin addict when we were in high school, and we know for a fact that Chloë Sevigny had this framed in her living room at one point.
The movie version of the Mary McCarthy novel directed by Sidney Lumet was kind of a stinker, but this poster is amazing.
Forget a vintage subway map: how about a poster from the movie about the person who designed the subway map? This poster is for Design Is One, the documentary about renowned designer couple Massimo and Lella Vignelli.
$30 is an excellent price for a framed poster of a painting by Hilma af Klint, the early-20th-century Swedish painter who is the subject of a much-Instagrammed exhibit at the Guggenheim.
This poster is giving off some vintage Hall of Minerals vibes, for the new New Agers out there.
This poster of a Mexican Lotería card would look great in a kitchen.
A bunch of succulents that, try as you might, you won’t kill …
We actually discovered the origins of this amazing (and odd) poster advertising grapefruits and oranges: the Yiddish was meant to attract Jews living in Florida in the 1940s. How excellent is the exclamation point?
This poster features an illustration from the first edition of Edith Wharton’s classic House of Mirth. The quote at the bottom — “You don’t seem to remember my existence nowadays” — is something Mrs. Trenor says to Lily. Very angsty and teen-room-appropriate.
