The Alien 1979 is a hand-pulled, fine art half-sheet movie poster lithograph by S2 Art from their Art of the Movies collection. This is an exact recreation of the 1979 half-sheet featuring artwork by Steve Frankfurt and Philip Gips. The poster is pulled on a rare, antique, French Marinoni Voirin printing press on handmade Rives BFK cotton paper using the finest inks.
This is not a reprint or reproduction. It is a remastered, recreated, original work of art.
The Alien feature length film starred Tom Skerritt and Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto.
The tagline reads: "In space no one can hear you scream."
This half-sheet was produced at S2 Editions Atelier, New York City, in 2001 under the guidance of the Ré Society Ltd, and S2 Art company. It was created in partnership with the American Film Institute's, 100 American Classic Movie Posters.
This lithograph bears the trademark of the Ré Society, plus the blind stamped emblem of the S2 Editions Atelier. The signature of the chromist, John Belacossa, is also printed unobtrusively on this lithograph in order to distinguish it from the original 1979 movie poster.
The lithograph is sequentially numbered in pencil in the lower centre border, by a curator at S2 Editions.
Comes with a certificate of authenticity by Re Society, Ltd. Item is packaged and shipped in a museum quality tube.
