Quaint and genteel, this shop has usual suspects and then some.. The Scene Tri-level Poster Plus is bright and friendly, with classical music piped in overhead. The basement level has custom framing and cataloging, and the third level houses a large vintage poster gallery.
The Goods Unframed and framed posters feature all the usual suspects--Picasso, Keith Haring and Monet--as well as lesser known artists. The "plus" part enters the picture with a bevy of gift items like clocks with smiling Mona Lisas; neckties dripping Dali clocks; and coffee mugs with Toulouse-Lautrec's can-can girls dancing across them. Shelves are jammed with books on architecture, military artwork and poster art. The store also sells many highlights from the neighboring Art Institute, but at a fraction of the cost.
