Iron Gut Offering Affordable Star Trek Fine Art
The UK’s Iron Gut Publishing has jumped into the world of licensed Star Trek fine art. Their goal is to bring fine art prints at an affordable price to just about any fan. They have also lined up an impressive set of artists including Geoffrey Mandel, Ryan Church, Brian Rood, Randy Martinez, and Dave Merrell and Paul Oz.
Mandel and Church should be familiar to Trekkies, as Mandel worked as an artist and designer on Star Trek: Insurrection, Star Trek Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise. He may be best known for designing the map of the Federation from the Star Trek: Star Charts book, which is now one of the offerings from the "Star Trek Fine Art Collection." The 36×24-inch map is priced at $699.
And TrekMovie readers will recognize Ryan Church as one of the two key illustrators for JJ Abrams Star Trek. Church designed the new USS Enterprise and many other elements from the film. A limited edition of his painting "Enterprise v Narada" is one of the new offerings (available on canvas for $475 and paper for $190).
Here are a few more pieces of art from the initial offering (with varying levels of size and paper/canvas quality and pricing):
