I’m a big fan of Mondo’s posters for new and classic movies for the same reason most people are: They’re inspired works of art. Instead of having to fulfill contractual obligations about the size of X star’s head in proportion to the title or being the result of a design-by-committee process that’s built to strip away any and all originality they speak to the core of a movie and convey a sometimes complex message about it. They work to tell a story in a new and interesting way. The best art often does.
Anyway, Mondo is getting a gallery show in Austin, TX in late February showing off the best of their artwork and Wired has a look at many of the pieces that will be on display.
