Artphoric, who have the exclusive rights to reproductions of famed artist Bob Peak’s work, have announced a new series of limited edition seriographs under their new IconcLE brand. Bob Peak is known for creating the art for a number of iconic movie posters from the 1960s through the 1980s, including posters for the first five Star Trek feature films. And the first IconcLE release will be a reproduction of Bob Peak’s art for the Star Trek: The Motion Picture poster.
To add some rarity to the new prints, Artphoric have recreated the art from one of Peak’s final submissions that is a slight variation on the final Star Trek: The Motion Picture poster released by Paramount. On close observation, you will note that Kirk and Spock are on opposite sides on this print than they were on the official movie poster.
Only 150 prints will be made in total, with 100 regular editions and 50 variants without titles. The process of creating the serigraphs separates it into 25 different layers (20 layers for version without titles), which are then high color-count screenprinted on heavyweight Cranes Lettra Flo white linen.
Artphoric has the artwork for all five of Bob Peak’s Star Trek feature film posters, including a number of variants. Hopefully over time they will release more Trek art prints in this new IconicLE line.
The 24″ x 36″ Star Trek: The Motion Picture seriographs are priced at $120 for the regular version and $140 for the variant. They go on sale on Friday June 15th at 1p (PST) at iconicleprints.com.
