BIG Chief Studios Ltd. under official license from BBC Worldwide Limited, are pleased to announce the release of a stunning new art collection in celebration of Series 8 of the hit TV series Doctor Who.
Originally commissioned by RadioTimes.com the week of each episode’s airing, by artist Stuart Manning, the individual posters were created in homage to the designs of classic film posters. Often referred to as “one sheets”, the art of film posters gave cinema-goers their first look at the characters and key scenes of the movie they advertised and have become much sought after by film enthusiasts and collectors alike.
The striking visual themes for each episode’s poster, blend retro styling and typography to recreate an authentic vintage feel for the digital age. The set includes an individual design for each of the episodes from series 8:
Each W11" x H14" art print is printed on high grade satin art stock with UV light stable inks and is suitable for framing.
Styled to resemble the packs that cinema houses used to receive from the film studios for their forthcoming releases due to be screened, the set comes packed in a bespoke envelope with string and washer closure, a cover letter and numbered certificate of authenticity. In addition there are two W10" x H8" black and white photo stills, similar to the those that used to be displayed in the lobby of many an old cinema.
Limited to only 2000 sets worldwide, the collection makes for an ideal gift for the Doctor Who fan.
