It’s been a busy couple of months at the Hyperallergic Store. All throughout quarantine, we’ve been hard at work shipping packages and replenishing our stock with the best art-inspired gifts, books, and toys.
We’re continuing to carry your favorites, but we recently added a number of exciting new products we also want to give a little attention to. If you’re looking for something to brighten your day (or someone else’s), take a look at some of the new additions and classic bestsellers we have in the store.
Now you can obsess over perfect proportions without having to work out! This eye-catching soft enamel pin, inspired by one of the most iconic drawings of the Italian Renaissance, “Vitruvian Man” by Leonardo da Vinci, will demonstrate your appreciation for art history as well as a great bod.
This mug-and-plate set features art by British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare, whose incredible work deals with colonialism, post-colonialism, and cultural identity. The whimsical illustration on this tableware appears to be a bunch of balloons dragging a Y-shaped bone across the surface but really, interpretation is up to the beholder.
Do you hear that sound? Could it be… an infinite scream passing through nature? Norwegian Expressionist Edvard Munch thought so too when he painted his iconic modern masterpiece “The Scream,” now available as a spooky pop-up card you can put on display, or send to your friends and family to show them how you really feel.
Celebrate the start of summer with this verdant pin inspired by Monet’s Water Lilies and Japanese Bridge paintings. Through this series, the Impressionist giant was able to capture the ever-changing atmosphere of his gardens at Giverny and now, over a hundred years later, you can have a tiny enamel version of your very own.

Originally a poster that appeared in New York City in 1988, this tea towel is infused with Guerrilla Girls pink and lists 13 advantages of being a woman artist, such as being included in revised versions of art history and not having to undergo the embarrassment of being called a genius! This sardonic design also comes as a clutch.
Sneeze in style into this handkerchief designed by the one and only Yayoi Kusama. Made of fine lawn cotton with hand-rolled edges, this handkerchief can be put to its traditional use or framed and hung on display in the home. And if you’re a Kusama fan, you’ll love the rest of her collection in the Hyperallergic Store.
Ceci n’est pas une pomme — but it is apple scented. Introduce a little surrealism to your shelves with this René Magritte action figure! He comes with a bowler hat, his signature pipe, an easel to display four miniature reproductions of some of his most famous works, and a foot-shoe inspired by “The Red Model.” This figurine is part of a series of artist collectibles including Mary Cassatt, Vincent van Gogh, and more.
This set of four corkboard coasters is based on Judy Chicago’s “The Dinner Party,” a massive ceremonial banquet arranged on a triangular table with 39 place settings, each commemorating an important woman from history. The next time we’re able to safely host dinner parties of our own, we can’t wait to use these coasters to wow our guests with how meta we are.
What better way to let your loved ones know how much you miss them than through a beautifully crafted pop-up card inspired by a painting of a lonely man’s bedroom? This card is based on Vincent van Gogh’s Bedroom in Arles series, and it’s so delicately modeled with such intricate details that we think it stands on its own as a work of art.
One of our most popular items is the Ridiculous Inflatable Swan-Thing and really, is that a surprise to anyone? Originally designed by British artist David Shrigley as a limited-edition sculptural piece, this pool float can’t wait to come home and flip your neighbors the bird as you splash about. Love the swan but no watering hole to speak of? Don’t worry, it also comes as a squeezable stress-thing and keychain-thing.
