Space Posters

2013


Space Posters contain a set of six colour posters based on the covers from a range of 20th Century Space Science and space speculation books. They are printed by Blood and Thunder Press, with durable soy ink on acid free paper. Edition of 50, with 5 AP.

The poster are based on found book covers, mostly discovered on a research trip to the Library of The British Interplanetary Society. By re-painting them in fresh, vibrant paint and then printing the paintings, they gain a new lease of life as slogans which strangely foresee the current era of space exploration.

Space Posters were launched to accompany the exhibition Interplanetary Society at Gallery 9, Sydney.
