The Long Island Bar: Signed, limited-edition print of a Great Good Place of Brooklyn
One of the Great Good Places of Brooklyn, the Long Island Bar came back to life in 2013, after laying dormant since 2007. The new owners Toby Cecchini and Joel Tompkins kept the bar (a 1949 Brunswick) almost exactly as they found it, and fully restored the fabulous neon sign. God bless 'em.
This art is featured in my book Bars, Taverns and Dives New Yorkers Love, available here.
Designed by artist John Tebeau, this handmade, three color print is screened on 16" by 20" heavyweight archival, acid-free paper, each one signed and numbered as part of a limited edition of 100. Perfect size for a standard frame.
The paper itself is made by the French Paper Company of Niles, Mich., a family business since 1871, using only hydroelectric power. Wow!
Prints will ship in the US free of charge.
A framed version is also available (for New York City pickup only), in a thin black metal frame.
