At this point, pigeonholing Ghostly International as a record label is beyond antiquated. Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan (and with a strong presence in NYC), the multi-platform creative house simultaneously delves into product design, fashion, visual arts and music. Their latest release is part of their Ghostly International Editions and sees the release of limited fine art prints from NYC-based illustrator Langdon Graves. Inspired by the themes, ideas and life of philosopher René Descartes, the series explores the separation of the cognitive and physical space, and the ways in which Descartes physically mapped out this separation. Each of the three illustrations feature a subdued color palette with photorealistic drawings juxtaposed with geometric patterns—calling to mind a mix of surrealist art and medical diagram.

Printed with archival ink on premium 308 GSM cotton photo rag, each of the three 20'' x 20'' prints is $130 from Ghostly's webstore and is limited to just 30 pieces.
