Absorbent Art

There's nothing more frustrating than a wanna-be collector.  Collecting art takes time, taste, and funds, and at least two of those things are usually in short supply.

Occasionally, though, art is affordable.  Take these limited edition beach towels by famous artists, for instance.  Each hefty toweling is a true example of each artist's inimitable style, from L.A. fave Ed Ruscha (pictured) to New York legend Julian Schnabel.  And you don't have to limit this art to the beach.  Just stretch it on a frame, hang it on a big wall, and viola!  Suddenly, your collector has some serious artwork for an unserious price.

These towels, as far as I know, are only available at  And while you're there, check out all the other limited edition pieces available; it's quite the fine art find.
