In terms of World Cup swag, we’ve seen everything from artist-edition track jackets to soccer ball–shaped ice-cube makers. For those with more highbrow tastes, there’s the Official Art Poster Edition, a series of 17 prints, commissioned by FIFA to promote next month’s South African games. The first edition of its kind debuted in 2006, with entries by contemporary artists like Andreas Gursky and Sarah Morris. This year’s set pays homage to the Cup’s host country with nearly a dozen prints by artists born or living on the African continent. Published by BrandsUnited, an official FIFA licenser, and available from David Krut in New York and South Africa, 2,010 of each are available.
