New Store Offers More Choices in Framing and Printing Than Ever Before
NEW YORK, NY and EMERYVILLE, CA (November 17, 2011)—Today, Condé Nast, the home of some of the world’s most celebrated media brands, and Art.com, Inc., the world’s leading online specialty retailer of wall art, launched a new, more robust Condé Nast store, selling thousands of iconic images and cartoons from titles within Condé Nast’s portfolio such as The New Yorker, Golf Digest, Glamour, Vanity Fair, and Vogue. At launch, The New Yorker Store and the Cartoon bank will have dedicated storefronts, which will be followed by similar showcases for additional Condé Nast brands by the end of 2012.
