Check Out These Gorgeous BAFTA Best Picture Illustrations

And they're available as limited edition prints.

Every year the British Acadamy of Film and Television (BAFTA) hires an artist to create imagery for their awards ceremony. The art is used on menus and programs, and this year they chose Jonathan Burton. Burton created five alternate covers for the BAFTA program guide, one for each movie nominated for Best Film. I imagine there's going to be a lot of trading and swapping going on at the ceremony, because each of these images is absolutely gorgeous. I even like the images for movies I didn't dig - the Life of Pi cover is wonderful, and sums up a lot of the film's themes in a more subtle and interesting way than the film itself.

If you're interested in buying these, they're available as limited edition prints, but the price is in English money, so who knows what they really cost. Maybe your citizenship.
