    Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars

    Posted by Steve Lake on Aug 19th 2021

    Looks so much better in real life than this picture conveys. Love it! I LOVE MOVIES, old and new alike, and these Art of the Movies posters are both nostalgic, and remarkable works of art wholly within themselves, far surpassing and even lapping the originals in my humble opinion. IN FACT, THESE MAY WELL BE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL POSTERS YOU’VE EVER SEEN! Having spent years in the printing industry myself, I never experienced anything like hand-pulled lithography. There is a vast difference in quality, one that I never fully appreciated, between using standard 4-color process as opposed to the typical 12-16 colors used to create these posters. THE COLORS FRANKLY LEAP OFF THE PAGE! There’s also a tactile difference quite apparent in the quality of paper. I already owned a large collection double-sided movie posters dating from the late 80s and longed for some old classics that would look nice in my backlit poster marquees. Took a chance and splurged on one of these, Richard III. I WAS BLOWN AWAY! These posters look FANTASTIC in backlit marquees, every bit holding their own to double-sided posters. After this initial purchase I now have 20 more in my possession and 8 more on top of that on the way! Here’s hoping they’ll add more to their collection!
