We’ve gotten quite a few e-mails asking about the remaining copies of ARMY OF DARKNESS by Randy Ortiz from the Kansas City screening back in April. We are excited to announce that we will be releasing them tomorrow wiht a few similarly themed companions.

Tomorrow, along with ARMY OF DARKNESS, we will be selling a brand new print for EVIL DEAD 2 by Jason Edmiston. Also, we will be releasing our third Mondo book, appropriately titled MONDONOMICON. This time around, instead of being only comprised of old prints and a nice leather cover (it has that, too), we have done a little something extra. Screen printed in blood-red across the backs of every print are an assortment of images from “dead” projects. No blank pages in this book. You’ll find 16 previously unused designs of which you can see some sample images of on our blog HERE. This is truly our book of the “dead.”

Book Review: ‘Silhouettes From Popular Culture’ By Olly Moss

Book Review

moss Silhouettes From Popular Culture

Titan Books released Silhouettes From Popular Culture By Olly Moss today, which stands as a ‘best of’ compilation of his first solo exhibition titled Paper Cuts which opened last year at Gallery 1988. Featuring a forward by Duncan Jones (Director of Source Code & Moon) and a quick Introduction by Olly Moss himself, it’s enlightening to get a firsthand explanation of what led him to have a solo show that consisted entirely of meticulously crafted laser cutouts.

The book itself is a nicely fabric-lined hardcover and sized just right to place on your coffee table to show off to your poster friends, or place it on top of your toilet for some good reading, or on your nightstand. As for the content itself, to the uninitiated it might almost at first seem elementary. But upon closer inspection, most will find themselves well entertained in trying to recognize who each pop culture silhouette is of. That in itself is the clever genius that is Olly Moss. Making the most out of the least is definitely not easy to do, and he has made a name for himself by excelling in this.

Many of his silhouette pieces were created to be presented as diptych or triptychs and this book organizes them all and presents them as so. Looking at a silhouette of the Alien on one page and Ripley on the other facing each other further enhances each image all the more.

Silhouettes From Popular Culture is a well crafted and conceived book that represents an artistic vision that is equal parts humorous, inspired, and witty.
On sale now HERE and HERE.

Mondo Book #1

mondo book 1

From Justin at Mondo:

If you attended the gallery show a few weeks ago, you might’ve seen or even bought our new book. We are all very excited with how they came out. I briefly talk about this in the intro of the book, but I was at a friend’s house earlier this year and noticed a book he had by Jay Ryan. It was full of posters…. actual pieces of the screenprinted posters. I thought about the giant stack of returned posters we’ve gotten over the years and figured this would be a great way to get those out as we were moving to the new space and didn’t want to transport them. So, we began to go through the giant stack and pick out which ones we wanted in and in what order they should go. We found a local binder and had him cut them down to size and over several weeks we hand put these books together. It was an intricate process and below you can see some of the pics of the book getting put together.

I went to WonderCon in Anaheim, CA a few weeks ago and got some sketches done in the book and felt like sharing them. Lots of folks that got these at the gallery show got the artists in attendance to draw in theirs as well, so this works as a great sketchbook!

These books are limited to just 105 copies made TOTAL and are bound in 100% leather. They will be put up for sale on the site tomorrow and will cost $200. Follow us on Twitter for the on sale announcement.

On sale Tuesday, March 27th at a random time HERE.
