I know what you’re thinking – not another Top Ten list. And yes, I know how you feel. I’ve been looking at all these Top Ten lists everywhere, and as an alternative movie poster connoisseur – not in the pretentious way, mind you – I have been wondering to myself if anyone shared my opinion having seen this year’s expansive list of prints. This year alone has been insane as far as silkscreen movie poster releases have gone. Mondo has put out more prints than ever (just compare this with this), Gallery 1988 started stepping it up a bit once they saw how many new prints were being released, new movie poster galleries are getting into the game, and then you have private commissions.
Private commissions are a somewhat new thing. Groups of collectors form up, pool their cash together, email an artist, and then see what they can do. Some of the prints that come out of the private commissions are good, and, to be blunt, most are bad. But the ones that do work out are amazing. As such, a few are in my Top Ten list. I’ve had a finger on the pulse of the alternate movie poster world, and I will share with you what I have found. After the jump, check out the Top Ten alternative movie posters of 2013.
