Our Film/Art team and the Bass family have been looking forward to this milestone for months, and had planned a wonderful public birthday celebration, where we'd hoped to meet some of you and reconnect with others. In March, it became clear that event planned for today would have to be postponed, but in the meantime we still wanted to find a way to celebrate Saul's 100th birthday. So we've decided to do something that neither Film/Art nor the Archive have ever done before: starting today and ending Sunday evening, all items in the Saul Bass Archive over $100 will be...
We're getting a jump start on July! Vintage Movie Poster highlights this month include lots of John Carpenter, including this great English 1 Sheet for his 1982 film THE THING. Like much of Carpenter's work (HALLOWEEN, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK) this film's reputation and popularity have grown significantly over the past few years.
We've got 1 Sheets for THUNDERBALL, GREY GARDENS, EASY RIDER, JAWS, THE WICKER MAN (English) and NASHVILLE (advance/foil style); Window Cards for 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY and Elvis Presley in LOVING YOU, a rare Japanese STB (2 Panel) for the 1963 documentary MARILYN, plus HAPPY TOGETHER, THE BIG LEBOWSKI, A WOMAN UNDER THE INFLUENCE, HONKY, A HIPPY VAMPIRE and more fun stuff, right here
We've got some major new releases from the Archive, including some posters that have rarely been offered - like this silkscreen for BONJOUR TRISTESSE. Though the original NSS 1 Sheet used this image in its entirety, this silkscreen is much more powerful. The white border and credits have been eliminated, leaving the iconic image and title alone. There's nothing to pull focus from the elegant, powerful design, and the rich silkscreened colors are stunning. Simply put: it's a work of art.
