Drew Struznans Frankenstein-Print

Mondo, deren Filmposter ich hier ab und zu poste, werden ab sofort von der Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences archiviert, die normalerweise nur offizielle Poster der Studios in ihre Sammlung aufnehmen. Eine Riesenehre, anlässlich derer sie ein Archiv mit sämtlichen bisherigen Prints online gestellt haben (Whoa!) und niemanden geringeres als Filmposter-Legende Drew Struznan aus dem Ruhestand geholt haben, der ihnen obigen sensationellen Frankenstein-Print gestaltete (Doppelwhoa!)

In addition to giving out Oscars every year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, the world’s largest movie related organization, does its best to preserve the history of cinema. One of the many ways does they do this is by keep an extensive catalog of every movie poster produced by a major studio. They’ve now decided to go a little outside of the studio system though and begin archiving posters from an independent producer: Mondo, the collectable art boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse.

To commemorate this incredible honor, Mondo is releasing their most impressive poster yet. They’ve managed to get legendary poster artist Drew Struzan out of retirement to do a screenprint for the 1931 Frankenstein starring Boris Karloff. It’s the first screenprint Struzan has ever done and it’s stunning.
