It was tempting to post some Degas sculptures and posters and call it a day (I need extra time to find LORDS-A-LEAPING!), but since I’m sure you were expecting that, I found some more unusual choices. Maybe it’s not the most topical print anymore, but I was thrilled to see Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” dance moves immortalized on archival & acid-free paper. And how can the appeal of ballerinas with moustache tutus be denied? All these picks make me want to turn on Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and shake a tailfeather…is that wrong?
