The Lost Poster


We’re all familiar with the silver Objectified poster, but Michael C. Place designed a second version with a white background and silver objects and black text that wasn’t used. It’s now being released as a limited edition letterpress, printed in metallic black and silver ink, on Crane’s Lettra 300gsm paper. Sounds like heaven.

It’s being printed by the awesome Brooklyn based Coeur Noir Letterpress, the same folks that printed the Helvetica poster and my son’s baptism invitation. They do stellar work.

Only 100 will be printed and you can grab one for $125.

    If it arrived in the same condition as my TWO orders for the silver version came in then I’d be ultra p*ssed off to spend 125$ on a limited edition poster! Yes, two orders of the silver poster because the first order came completely damaged so I ordered a second one which also came quite damaged. Poster delivery from US -> Europe = not good.

  • this poster is absolutely stunning! looks like it’s straight out of modernity. it’s super high quality, correct?

  • Yes, the poster is definitely high quality. I received one of the silver ones at the NY screening after winning the best Q&A Question Contest and got to meet Gary and get the poster signed by him. Such a sweet guy. The film is just as wonderful as the poster.

  • Brian, I have the letterpressed Helvetica poster that was printed by the same company and it’s stunning. Top quality.

    i love this poster, but am not familiar with it’s history (as i am not a graphic designer, but a furniture designer). i have been thinking about having Coeur Noir print something for me, and so researching their work, arrived at your wonderful blog.
