Done right, alternative movie posters can be fantastic works of art. Done wrong, they look like minimalist Olly Moss rip offs. Thankfully Print Club London’s Soho House commissioned series is the former.
Print Club London are currently curating a selection of illustrations and print 12 alternative film posters commissioned by Soho House for their Electric Cinema venue in Notting Hill. Artists Hattie Stewart, HelloVon, Anthony Burrill and Ed Wood have created unique works inspired by World War Z, Lincoln, The Great Gatsby, Gangster Squad, Rush, Anchorman 2, and a few more.
Hunger Games: Catching Fire by Hattie Stewart, edition of 100, £60
Print Club London state on their website that “The poster series was inspired by Soho House designer Ed Wood’s weekly illustrated posters for the Electric Cinema, which soon developed a fan-base of people wishing to buy and take home his designs.”
Head on over to the Print Club London website to have a look at the full series.
