Buy Pratt this Holiday Season!  

Prices and links to products are included in captions in the slideshow.

From books to cutting boards, a fresh crop of items designed by Pratt alumni and faculty are just a few clicks away this holiday season.

Consider these alternatives to standard stocking stuffers: Lightning is the newest album by pop indie sensation Matt & Kim—the duo, who met at Pratt, both graduated in 2004. On the publishing front, there’s Hidden Cities: A Memoir of Urban Exploration, a memoir that chronicles Visiting Assistant Professor of Graduate Planning Moses Gates’s thrilling adventures into unseen—and often, forbidden—sites in locales as diverse as Cairo and Stonehenge. In Bright Nights: Photographs of Another New York, Tod Seelie (B.F.A. Photography ’02) offers a glimpse into underground music scenes, grungy house parties, and utter chaos.

Or for a piece of just-immortalized memorabilia, pick up Lady Gaga’s dentures—or rather the Dental Cuff, by Danielle Nicole Hills (B.F.A. Fine Arts ’11). The pop star recently sported the bracelet on the cover of her single “Dope”—although she wore the bracelet in her mouth instead of on her wrist.

These options, and more, are featured in the slideshow above.

The Pratt Communications and Marketing Office periodically publishes pieces that showcase Pratt-made products. If you'd like to submit something, please email Ruth Samuelson at rsamuels@pratt.edu.

Would be nice if Pratt created on online store to support and benefit from the large volume of avail alum products. I see occasional reference to products...but it's even hard to get them mentioned in Prattfolio.

I agree with the post by D. Jost above; an online Pratt store for products from students and its alum would go a long way towards giving to the school as well as supporting its students/alum. RISD does a wonderful job with its online shop, albeit time-consuming at the initial phase of setting up the site, but perhaps a techie Pratt grad could help.
