The great city of the North finally gets it due with this series of art prints and posters featuring charming Manchester. Old hometown or a new favourite, these lovely wall hangings will help you celebrate the very best the city has to offer.
With its towering skyscrapers and quaint Victorian buildings, Manchester has such a lovely variety of sights we think it’s absolutely the perfect place to celebrate with gorgeous visual art. Prints and posters featuring local landmarks like the gothic town hall or the stunning Central Library are just the thing to show off your architectural vision and they look equally good in pen-and-ink (a more subdued look) as they do in luscious full-colour photographs. Try pairing these prints with more abstract paintings of the local flora and fauna, like gorgeous watercolours of the Manchester Zoo and its splendid inhabitants or the majestic Heaton Park. Feeling inspired? Place a few examples of your own “local fauna” below with a small display of houseplants in cheery terracotta pots to really make this part of your room thrive.
Another category we love when we’re looking to celebrate our favourite cities is map prints and Manchester, with its windy, ancient streets makes for some beautiful examples. Whether you want something that shows the complete town in all its glory or something more focused on a favourite neighbourhood like the Northern Quarter, these maps are sure to fascinate and provide much needed texture. Maybe try one in rainbow colours to celebrate the famous Manchester Pride? If so you can pair it with a print of your best-loved LGBTQ+ icon, just make sure it really pops!
