Please help me name this film poster book

A few months ago, the Guardian on a Saturday printed alternative takes on famous film posters that ran for a few weeks (think it was in The Guide section)

Think there was also an exhibition this year in London showing the work.

But can't find name of it (and no luck on Google)

Anyone please help me out?

Alternative takes? As in Mondo/Alamo Drafthouse film posters? http://www.mondoarchive.com/

or as in movie art like the Crazy 4 Cult at Gallery 1988?
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Crazy-Cult-M.../dp/0857681036

If neither of these, any more descriptions/info? Sounds interesting!

might be that, but found this

can't tell - my memory is so crap

but I do really like those mondoarchive ones - how does one buy prints of those? is it just contacting the artist?


thanks for your help

Cool - thanks for the little white lies link, I like some of those.

Mondo prints sell out veru fast these days. They usually put them up for sale on a Friday (at either 4pm or 5pm UK time), your best bet is to sign up to the mailing list on their site (http://www.mondotees.com/) and maybe follow them on twitter, or check a site like http://omgposters.com/

If there's one in particular that you want, your best bet is ebay or a private sale on a site like http://www.expressobeans.com/ (search for the print/movie and you can click a link to see which members are selling it). You could try contacting the artist directly to see if they have any artist proofs for sale (e.g. Tyler Stout has lotterys on his site for some of his prints), however I think half the appeal is that they're editioned and hence quite limited. They're beautiful in the flesh though, lovely screen prints on nice paper. Some go for silly money on the secondary market though, so beware! e.g.

- Olly Moss' Star Wars set - http://www.expressobeans.com/public/detail.php/130044
- Tyler Stout's posters for The Thing (or Big Trouble or Blade Runner) - http://www.expressobeans.com/public/detail.php/77886
- Drew Struzan's Frankenstein - http://www.expressobeans.com/public/detail.php/138554
