We're big Mondo fans 'round these parts, and not just because Mondo's our sister company: the work being done by that team is next level, and - over the past decade or so - has set the standard for collectible, screenprinted movie posters. Mondo works with some of the best artists in the world, and that talent comes through in every one of their releases.
Now the folks at Insight Editions have put together The Art Of Mondo, a sprawling art book based on Mondo's ever-expanding catalogue. The book arrives on October 10th (you can pre-order a copy via the Amazon link at the bottom of this page), and today we're thrilled to announce that we - that'd be us, Mondo, and our friends at Insight Editions - are giving away a copy of the book...as well as one of the all-time best Mondo posters.
First up, here's an exclusive look at a few of the spreads you'll see in The Art Of Mondo:
Dirty Harry by Olly Moss / The Evil Dead by Olly Moss
Ghost In The Shell by Martin Ansin
Hard Eight by Rich Kelly / Jaws by Laurent Durieux
We can't show you the rest of the contents of the book, obviously, but rest assured that its 356 pages are packed with selections from Mondo's entire catalogue. As an added bonus, the tome features a foreward written by The Iron Giant director Brad Bird, whose film Mondo has created all sorts of collectibles for over the years. Here's a few more details, from The Art Of Mondo's Amazon page:
"Adored by the creative talents to whom Mondo’s art pays tribute—including Paul Thomas Anderson, Guillermo del Toro, Zack Snyder, Quentin Tarantino, and Edgar Wright, to name but a few—this richly imaginative work is fueled by a love of pop culture that fans recognize and identify with, giving Mondo’s output a rare and valuable synergy with its audience. While these posters are normally produced in a limited quantity and sell out in minutes, The Art of Mondo allows fans to explore the studio’s remarkable back catalog, including Olly Moss’s iconic Star Wars trilogy work, Laurent Durieux’s brilliantly subtle Jawsposter, and Tyler Stout’s evocative Guardians of the Galaxy art. Other key Mondo artists such as Jock, Martin Ansin, and Aaron Horkey will also feature. Definitive, visually stunning, and filled with art that celebrates some of the biggest and best-loved properties in pop culture, The Art of Mondo is the ultimate book for cult art fans everywhere."
