When I saw these Build Your Own Favorite Directors (Set of 4 Coasters) from Retrowhale, I knew I had to share them with you all! If you come from a (nerdy) family like ours, it seems as though every member knows not only the title and starring actor of every popular movie since 1960, but also who directed each movie under the sun. Not a dinner goes by when there isn't a discussion surrounding Scorsese, Woody Allen, the Coen Brothers, or Wes Anderson. I love this coaster set as a gift for many reasons. One, is that it's customizable! Get your dad Scorsese, Kubrick, Soderbergh, and Allen, and get your brother or boyfriend, Baumbach, Anderson, Spike Lee, and Tim Burton. These coasters would make a great addition to any living room or dining room, and are definitely a conversation starter! I love that they are also pieces of art. And, if you don't have the money to spend on this set, check out the Build Your Own Directors Set of Prints* for much cheaper and you can still use and frame these unique and one-of-a-kind pieces of art!

You can chose from any of these four directors:
Martin Scorsese, Stanley Kubrick, Woody Allen, Quentin Tarantino, Spike Jonze, Paul Thomas Anderson, Steven Soderbergh, Noah Baumbach, Wes Anderson, Coen Brothers, Spike Lee, Jim Jarmusch, Tim Burton, Francis Ford Coppola, Roman Polanski, and Sophia Coppola. These coasters are made with "printed with high quality pigment inks and then hand painted with India ink and liquid acrylic and sealer."

*Images are hand drawn and then digitally colored. Prints measure 4.5"x 4.5” each with a small white border for framing. Send me a message if you need a bigger size and I'll be happy to make them for you. Printed on Epson archival matte fine art paper with high quality pigment inks. Prints are signed and dated and shipped in a bend proof mailer.

PS. Love these Royal Tenenbaums coasters!
