Vice Press is working with Bottleneck Gallery to release an epic piece of film art history: lenticular prints of the unforgettable poster art for The Thing! Drew Struzan’s iconic imagery for John Carpenter’s cult film comes to life in an all-new, eye-popping way. Working with the original imagery, these prints replicate the image to the highest, using lenticular printing – a technology in which lenticular lenses are used to produce printed images with an illusion of depth, or the ability to change and move as the image is viewed from different angles.
This print will be available in two styles, a 3D Lenticular version and 3D Art print version. 3D Lenticular (with text) and Art Print 3D Lenticular both have the same specs, and are 1mm PET mounted on the high-density paper backing, measuring 24 x 36 inches. Both versions are a limited edition of 300 and are priced at £75 (approximately $100 USD). Both are also available in a premium 3D Lenticular Plex version which has a price tag of £150 (approximately $200 USD). The Plex editions are limited to 150 numbered units. All versions include a hand-numbered certificate of authenticity.
Please note: the images above are a mockup to demonstrate the 3D effect, actual prints will differ. All lenticular prints ship flat and cannot be combined with any other order. All UK orders will be shipped from the UK by Vice Press. All International orders will be shipped from the USA by Bottleneck Gallery.
All versions of The Thing by Drew Struzan will be available Thursday the 25th of February at 5pm GMT/ 12pm EST exclusively at Vice-Press.com
Look for these spectacular collectibles that commemorate one of horror and science fiction’s most recognizable images to ship June/July 2021.
