Flip the Script by Surface to Air

Surface To Air has released their 3rd publication which is comprised of 50 movie posters. 50 artists have been commissioned by Surface To Air to “recreate, reinterpret, reinvent, reshape, remix a poster for a film of their choosing”. The result is an impressive compilation of re-designed posters of movies spanning from the 1950s. The styles and techniques used for these posters vary greatly making this project all the more unique.

The above is the poster of “The Man with the Golden Arm” (1955) starring Frank Sinatra created by Steve Ellis. Here’s a couple more of my favourite ones in the collection:

Stanley Kubrick’s “Clockwork Orange” (1971), by Jon Santos.

…and by one of my favourite artists, Kenzo Minami, who recreated the poster for “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” (1974).

Check out book and the rest of the posters at Flip the Script. I’d love to pick one up but this oversized book comes with a hefty price tag of $1,250USD.
