There has been a movement toward revisiting the hand-drawn, the handmade—the unique creation someone crafted with love. The abundance of hand-done typography and popularity of sites like Etsy are forerunners of this "rediscovering of our roots," of bringing back the value of objects that weren't mass-produced in a factory overseas. To this end, art prints designed by individual sellers have a charm that is undeniable, and it is easy to see why. Here are seven gorgeous art prints that provide the perfect way to decorate a room, a little bit of hand-crafted uniqueness to mix in with your items bought from larger retailers—sans the fine print.
