As an Interior Decorator I am on the constant lookout for source material for my clients. I recently completed a Studio pied a terre in the Georgian period for Mr. David Brown at Lincoln Center. That is, we were almost finished with only the artwork to be designed and purchased. I have a passion for antique architectural prints and I can't believe that I didn't know about Argosy Books. After all Designers don't really like to share their finds with others. I was in a cab, looking out the window as we passed by Argosy Books and noticed a fine selection of framed prints hanging in the window. I had found my oasis! I now head first to Argosy for all my print work and framing. What a treasure and a real lifesaver for design business! Thanks eternal. - Aaron James
