Motivating Poster?

Post by Apex_ » Tue 09.02.2008 9:20 pm

Hi,
It may sound a bit odd but I would like to own a poster, preferably of the Kyoto area so that I can have it on my wall and remind myself of the ultimate goal of all this learning, thus providing some extra motivation.

Do any of you know anywhere where I might be able to get one. It is proving more difficult than it sounds. So far eBay have none and allposter is selling them for £25+ and really I was originally looking for something a bit cheaper, especially as most of them are propper prints you would frame and not just blue-tack to your wall.

Thanks.

Does that mean you are in the UK?
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

Did you check amazonUK? I found a nice poster of Kinkakuji there for only £4.99.

that's an amazing poster.. Sometimes, living near the US capital makes me forget how beautiful many of the areas in Japan are/were..

Indeed, Kyoto is one of my favorite places to visit. I especially love Ginkakuji, something about the sand gardens and the moss there really gets me. Speaking of moss, I'd love to visit Saihoji sometime too, but I heard that it's not just open to anyone and you have to go through quite a bit of rigamarole to get in.

Yeah I am in the Uk sorry I forgot to specify.

Thanks for the link becki_kanou I had seen that poster before and it will be what I opt for should nothing else turn up, but as far as variety goes I have only come accross 2 different types, including the one you have linked to. Thanks anyway though.

edit: having put in the search 'art poster Japan' in Amazon UK I have now found a lot more options. Odd, Thanks :D .
