If the talented graphic designer Saul Bass were still alive, he would have celebrated his 93rd birthday on Wednesday. In honor of that day, artist Fernando Reza borrowed the aesthetics of Bass’ well known movie posters and applied them to Game of Thrones. From Reza’s site:
Each poster commemorates one of Saul Bass’ frequent collaborators Otto Preminger, Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchock, and John Frankenheimer. Each with visual cues to some of Bass’s most iconic works. This also opened the door to envisioning what a Hitchcock/Kubrick/Preminger/ Frankenheimer adaptation may have been, so each print comes complete with prospective cast and crew info at the bottom.
The colors and imagery are striking. Plus, I really like the “not suitable for children” stamp on each poster.
Check out a few more neat designs and a link to buy prints after the break.
