Amongst all of history’s rebels, perhaps most beloved are pirates. Their alluring mythos, distinctive looks, and memorable vernacular are undoubtedly part of their charm. So much so, that Talk Like a Pirate Day is a real, annual thing coming up this Saturday, September 19. We think this day is tons of fun, and last year we pulled together a curation of prints capturing the pirate’s life. This year, we’ve added even more aargh-t!
Before rum-guzzlin’ Jack Sparrow stole your heart, pirates were (and still are) a serious threat. Believe it or not, pirates came from all walks of life. Many were led to piracy by circumstance, while some simply abandoned common life to take to the seas. They didn’t just roam the Caribbean either, as pirates could be found on the coasts of Africa and Asia too.
These swashbuckling troublemakers and their animal companions have inspired more than language and costumes. They’re also portrayed in art. Just as no two pirates are alike, the same goes for our prints! Plunder your way through our curation below to find your perfect print.
