Heading to Dallas tonight, so drop tomorrow may be tricky for me. But I'll definitely be trying for the first time in months as well.

Not 50s, rather the 60s.

They are emulating the British quad design/format but utilizing the Australian exhibition logo, which makes sense being Taylor's home country. Interesting to see a hybrid of two countries' poster designs, pretty cool.

Awesome job by Ken Taylor! I think he nailed it. These will go fast.

Love it - this could be my first Mondo disney. Gonna be trying for this - better go get my gift card. But I see they are seemingly keeping the prices up to $50 now. Another increase...

In fairness that re-commissioned UK quad is considered a masterpiece of vintage poster art. I'm pretty sure Ken would be honored to sit in comparison to it.
Personally I think Ken's work here is absolutely outstanding. His gorgeous illustration is matched only by his wonderful layout and type design.

Ansin, Taylor and Stout are the masters of the 'classic' Mondo movie poster, imo...

By that I mean the conventional style, folks like Jay and Moss do their thing with it, create art prints etc...these 3 give us that classic montage in a 24x36 image... :pint:

The font is terrible. Would have perferred Horkey type, would have made a good fusion.

I was thinking the same thing! Also this will be a nice companion piece for Moby Dick.

I like Taylors lettering and often find Horkey all too busy.
