Poster Per Diem: Paul Pope's "Belltower" Art Print

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."

"Belltower" Art Print
Paul Pope
16" x 36" (Screen Print) - Numbered
Sold Out - Limited to 250
Inspired By: Yojimbo

Today's PPD is one of those prints that I regret never having picked up. Not only is it a jaw-dropping Paul Pope masterpiece (we're talking about the guy who did 100% and Heavy Liquid after all), it's also a beautiful tribute to Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo and Toshiro Mifune's incredible performance. Damn I want this poster! This print has long been sold out and for good reason. Should this print ever be made available again (I'm guessing it won't), you can bet I'll be the first guy in line.
