Announcing Art of Manliness Posters

We’ve gotten a lot of emails from readers asking us to create some Art of Manliness posters. You know. Something manly you can hang on the wall in your office, garage, or dorm room that inspires you to be the best man you can be. Well, thanks to some help from the incomparable design geniuses at Tankfarm Clothing (the same guys responsible for our outstanding t-shirts designs), we think we’ve created two posters that fit the bill. Ready to check them out? Read on!

Teddy Roosevelt “Man in the Arena” Poster

A poster of Teddy Roosevelt, smiling at death itself while waving his hat to his admirers. Next to him you’ll find inscribed his manliest and most inspiring quote, “The Man in the Arena.” Whenever dejection and defeat come knocking at your door, simply glance at TR’s toothy grin and hear his voice reminding you that “the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood.” In an instant your manly resolve will be rejuvenated, and you’ll have the vim and vigor to overcome any challenge that comes your way.

24 x 18 inches

Rudyard Kipling “If” Poster

A poster that depicts Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem “If.” In the background you’ll find Casper David Friedrich’s famous painting “The Wanderer Above the Sea Clouds.” We thought this was a fitting image for such a manly poem. Look how the man looks out upon the majesty below as he contemplates that word with endless possibility, danger, and excitement…. if. Over that image, we took the powerful words of Kipling’s poem and arranged them so they form the word “If.” This poster will be a constant reminder to you of what it takes to be a man. It makes a great gift for a young man to hang in his room.

18 x 24 inches.

We had a lot of fun designing these posters. We hope you enjoy them. They make a great holiday gift!
