- The 750+ lot auction features an incredible collection of over 160 contemporary alternative movie posters from some of the most renowned artists in the field.
- Auction highlights include a very rare set of three gold variant, artist proof Star Wars Trilogy Mondo posters by Tyler Stout. Selling out almost immediately on first release in 2010, this set of posters quickly became one of the most desirable ‘Mondo’ prints on the secondary market, with this set featuring matching numbers, all hand-signed by the artist and estimated between £2,000 – 3,000 ($2,674 – 4,011).
- Another incredibly rare poster included in the auction is a Signed and Numbered Limited Edition Private Commission Print from Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). Inspired by Tom Jung’s iconic Star Wars: A New Hope artwork, this is an early example of the work of Matt Ferguson and is considered to be one of the rarest in the hobby, with the poster estimated to sell between £1,000 – 1,500 ($1,337 – 2,005).
- A fantastic array of horror posters is set to go under the hammer, including one of the best-known early examples of renowned artist, Olly Moss’ work – a signed and hand-numbered limited edition Mondo poster from Evil Dead (1981) estimated between £1,000 – 1,500 ($1,337 – 2,005).
- In addition, the auction features no less than seven variations of poster for the 1931 classic Frankenstein, including work by artists including Francesco Francavilla, Paul Mann, Bernie Wrightson and more.
- The auction is taking place across two days on Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th December 2021 and bids can be placed online and by telephone from anywhere in the world
