We were already big fans of artist Juan Ortiz, and his vintage-style Star Trek art prints. Well, apparently he has created a unique movie-poster-esque print for EVERY EPISODE of Star Trek: The Original Series. 80 prints. Better yet? You can get a 10″x14″ hardcover book containing every print, for $25.
We originally wanted this as a coffee table book, but now I’m thinking we might use a bunch of the prints for the gallery wall we’re planning. Either way, a great buy for nerds!
Here is the info about the book, from Amazon:
What if every Star Trek: The Original Series episode was a movie event? What would the movie poster look like? This was the inspiration to develop a one-of-a-kind set of images for the series that launched a franchise. Artist Juan Ortiz has created unique retro-style art with the look of a 60s movie poster, comic book, pulp novel cover or advertisement, one each for all 80 episodes.
