Heads Up: Spoke Art's "Vertigo" Movie Posters

I'm not sure how long it'll be before these sell out, so I'll make this quick. Spoke Art has released not one, but two Vertigo prints in cooperation with the historic Castro Theatre. And who do you get to tackle such an iconic Bay Area film? Well, San Francisco-based artist Chuck Sperry might be a good start! After all, who better to capture that City by the Bay vibe than someone who's lived and worked in the area for so long? But who else, who else? Oh, yeah! How about Polish poster-obsessed Sam Smith, whose ability to abstractly depict the psychological battlefield that is Vertigo may only be bested by the likes of Andrzej Krajewski and Franciszek Starowieyski?! In all seriousness, these are two great looking screen prints and are sure to please the Hitchcock fan in your life.

Vertigo Movie Poster
Chuck Sperry
18" x 24" (Screen Print) - Signed and Numbered
$50 Single / $80 Matching Set - Limited to 200

Vertigo Movie Poster
Sam Smith
18" x 24" (Screen Print) - Signed and Numbered
$40 Single / $80 Matching Set - Limited to 100

Both posters are currently available through Spoke Art's online storefront for $40 (Smith's take) and $50 (Sperry's take). If you feel the need to own both of them, and really, why wouldn't you, you can buy a matching set for only $80 and save some money along the way.
