The New York Public Library did this awesome project, analyzing all their data to find out the top ten most checked-out books in their 125 year history. It’s a brilliant list, and I made this print so you can see them, in checked-out order from left to right. The Snowy Day! Charlotte!! Fahrenheit 451!
Also, they gave an honorable mention to Goodnight Moon (apparently the children’s librarian at its time of publication chose not to put it into circulation so it can't make up for lost time but it is extremely popular of course), so I stuck it on the end.

Framing & Sizing Info

We partner with our friends at Simply Framed to offer custom framing in your choice of frame, plus an appropriately-sized white mat and UV-shielding plexiglass. (You can see more details in our FAQ.)

Please note, if you order a framed 8 x 10" print or painting, it will arrive in a frame that is about 11.75 x 13.75". An 11 x 14" print or painting will be in a 16.75 x 19.75" frame, and a 16 x 20" in a 22.75 x 26.75" frame.

As all the frames are custom fit to the prints, framing your work adds 2-3 weeks to your delivery time, but it is SO worth it, we promise.
