    a photo by Stan Chow on Flickr.

    The Evolution of James Bond, a limited edition of 250 Giclée Print. All six Bond’s lined in a row, the second from left is George Lazenby who turned down a seven-movie deal because his agent believed that the role would be seen as archaic in the liberated 1970s.

    All prints on 100% Cotton Matte Archival 315gsm paper. A3+ (13″x19″). are signed and cost £250. Very nice indeed Miss Moneypenny.

    Contemporary gig posters rival the medium’s late-sixties heyday 

    The art of the concert poster has experienced a revival in recent years. Contemporary work by the likes of The Small Stakes, Little Jacket, F2 Design and Methane Studios has begun to rival the great gig posters of the psychedelic era, such as the work of Wes Wilson and Rick Griffin.

    Andrew Lindstrom, a freelance web designer based in Vancouver, has collected the 50 best contemporary designs. He says, “nowadays, the majority of indie bands have a growing collection of poster art that is just too incredible to simply throw away once the show has ended. Not surprisingly, this has led to the gig poster being something of a collectors item for music fanatics everywhere.”

      Not sure this ever died, at least not in the U.S. where the tradition has seen the likes of Coop, Frank Kozik, amongst others, carry the flame to this day.

      I suppose it has never gone away, but there has been a revival or sorts. I think some of it has to do with the musicans featured in the list. Most of them (Sufjam Stevans, Joanna Newsom, Arcade Fire etc … belong to that so-called “new sincerity” branch of new american folk. I think a lot of the illustration-based stuff is in sympathy with it.

    Meet Eric Tan, new movie poster boy captures the classicism of the past 

    A bit of visual candy: Disney designer Eric Tan makes posters for new films in the old style. Taking inspiration from the work of the artists of the German UFA studios of the 1920s, Tan’s posters are used within Hollywood (The X-Men poster was produced for Stan Lee’s birthday), but have yet to be given a full theatrical release.

    London poster exhibition really is the best of British 

    I’ve just returned from London where I saw the thoroughly excellent Modern British Posters exhibition at Central St Martin College of Art and Design in Holborn. It’s a fairly compact exhibition pulled from the private collection of Paul Rennie (there’s a nice gallery here), one of the tutors at the famous art college. The exhibition covers the period around the second world war and concentrates on the heavy use of lithography, which dominated commercial art much longer in  Britain than it did in the rest of Europe.  There’s also a bit more humor in the posters when compared with contemporary material in the rest of Europe and some wonderfully sanctimonious war time propoganda. 

    Incidently, Brightonians might want to click through to Rennie’s shop in Folkstone, Rennie’s Seaside Modern, where he selling this beautiful collection of late Victorian and Edwardian photographs of the seafront at Brighton. (found via AceJet

    Talking to the taxonomist about poetry 

    I recently came across a new site called FFFFound.com. It’s an image sharing site that allows its members (its a closed beta list) to upload images that they find on the web. This work, a witty taxonomy of animals and mascots used as the logos for various global corporations, is by the US graphic designer Corey Holms, who is most famous for designing the logo for the Sopranos.

    If you like this sort of thing, then its also worth looking at another new Mexican site called Typeish which showcases an edited selection of fashion, photography, art installations and graphic design. I came across this smart looking poster shop within three of four clicks.
