Poster Per Diem: DirtyGreatPixels' "Attack the Block" Movie Poster

If you visit this site with any regularity, you already know I tend to write reviews for film and television inspired prints that are either currently on sale or are about to go on sale. And while I'll still be pouring the majority of my efforts into those sorts of posts, my daily "Poster Per Diem" feature will focus on awesome prints that have since sold out, never existed in the first place (AKA concept posters) or just bear mentioning. In other words: this is my chance to say, "I never got a chance, for whatever reason, to write about you on this here website, but I think you're really purty and I want to let the world know." Or something like that. Oh, and Per diem is latin for "per day" or "each day."

Attack the Block Movie Poster
13" x 19" (Giclée) - Signed and Numbered
£25 - Limited to 100

In full disclosure, my second favorite film of 2011 was Attack the Block. I love every frame of Attack and take every opportunity I'm given to promote what I believe is a modern day action masterpiece. But enough about my crazed obsession with Joe Cornish's feature debut, let's take a look at DirtyGreatPixels' beautiful monochromatic artwork. Now, I'm not one for hyperbole (alright, that's just a blatant lie), but this is one of the prettiest fan-made prints I've seen in quite a while. I love its overall simplicity and how the titular "block" is cleverly used to hide the creature's torso. DirtyGreatPixels' Attack the Block poster is currently available through Etsy for £25 (approximately $40.) The giclée measures 13" x 19", is signed and numbered, and is limited to an edition of 100.
