Check Out Spoke Art's Two Fantastic New 'Dr. Strangelove' Posters
"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!" Ahh the classic comedy Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. The famous Castro Theatre in San Francisco recently held a 4K screening of the Stanley Kubrick film, and in honor of the event they commissioned a series of posters from Spoke Art. I first came across this art on Facebook and immediately stopped as my jaw dropped. These are two of the best posters I've ever seen for this film. While that certainly is hyperbole, it all depends on your own design sensibilities. To me, these are almost perfect, love ’em. See both below.
Here's the first Spoke Art poster for Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove. Both of these will be sold this week.
Second alternate Spoke Art poster design for Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove. Now this one is my favorite.
From their blog post: "Spoke Art is proud to release two new screen prints by regular contributing artists Tracie Ching and Sam Smith. Commissioned by the historic Castro Theatre in San Francisco to promote a sanctioned screening of the Stanley Kubrick classic, both limited edition posters will be made available for purchase this Friday, September 27th via the Spoke Art online store." Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove was first released in 1964, and now has a 4K digital restoration touring around (get it on Blu-ray, too).
