Typographical Posters Pay Tribute To Star Wars, Blade Runner, And More

By David Wharton | 8 years ago

The longer I work this GFR gig, the more impressed I become at the myriad creative artistically minded fans express their passion for their favorite movies, shows, books, etc. Whether it’s a short film set in one of their favorite fictional universes, a razor-witted web comic, or a life-size Optimus Prime statue made out of beer cans, there are some damn talented folks out there. (Note: I haven’t actually seen a life-size Optimus Prime statue made out of beer cans, so somebody should get on that.)

Case in point? These brilliant “typographical drive-in prints,” which take the silhouettes of some of science fiction’s most iconic characters and recreate them with some of those characters’ words. So for instance, there’s Darth Vader, who is fond of saying, “You don’t know the power of the dark side.” And thus:

Pretty snazzy, right? The posters are the creation of U.K. based 17th and Oak, and in addition to plenty more Star Wars-inspired prints, there are images referencing Blade Runner, Terminator 2, and Transformers. Not to mention non-sci-fi flicks like the Indiana Jones movies and Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings.

If these babies are just crying out to decorate your wall, it looks like they’re all available for purchase via the 17th and Oak website.
