Back in 2010, we featured the cool artwork of graphic designer Justin Van Genderen, who crafted vintage travel posters for locations that featured prominent superheroes. The fictional cities of Metropolis and Gotham City were given their due diligence, New York had Spider-Man as inspiration, and the artist even threw in Neo Tokyo from Akira for good measure. Last year, he did three more for Ghostbusters, Road to Perdition and Die Hard. Now he's back with a slew of new posters paying tribute to films like Star Trek, but also non-blockbusters like Fargo, Man on Wire, Gattaca and more. They're all gorgeous. Look!
Here's Justin Van Genderen's vintage travel movie posters from the artist's portfolio:
A couple of the posters at the end (The Avengers and WALL-E) have been around for longer, but we never got around to posting them. The rest are brand new, and the good news is that you can purchase any of them for proud display on your wall. Whether you're a huge Star Trek fan, absolutely love Superman or need every Harry Potter print ever made, there's something for everyone. Lawrence of Arabia gets some respect (which seems appropriate following the death of Peter O'Toole) and Looper gets a pretty fancy poster as well. My favorite is the Star Trek Iowa design, and that one might end up on my wall. Cool?
