About Poster Art
Most homes have posters hanging, but these are usually cheap reprints that people buy for a few hundred dollars, spend for a while and throw away when they have become boring. It is a cheap alternative to real art, especially if one does not want to settle for mediocre art. But since this is a use-and-throw-away culture, the cheap price is an expense for something temporary, and certainly not sustainable.
