Last year, we released arguably one of the greatest movie posters ever: Bob Peak’s APOCALYPSE NOW. Luckily for cinephiles and collectors alike, that wasn’t Mr. Peak’s only work completed for Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 war epic. And we always have more up our sleeves.
Over the last year or so, we’ve been working closely with American Zoetrope and Matthew Peak on producing a screenprint of the original German one sheet artwork. As with the American one sheet art we released last April, Jason Edmiston and Jon Smith handled the print separations - breaking the artwork down into 9 colors - and Shane Mahn handled the type layout.
(Fun fact: Bob Peak’s signature is backwards on the artwork. We asked Matthew if we should correct that for the screenprinted version and he said "No", and that his dad would want people to know his preferred orientation of the work. We were happy to oblige.)
This poster will be available on Thursday, January 13 at 11AM CT on The Drop at mondoshop.com.
