Poster makers Vice Press have just launched a new poster by top artist Paul Mann, celebrating Universal’s classic 1930’s horror film, The Mummy, starring Boris Karloff.
When Vice Press first kicked off their Universal Monsters series with Bottleneck Gallery, Paul Mann was at the top of the list of artists the team at the high quality poster makers wanted to with.
“He delivered exactly what we imagined with his poster for Frankenstein, and now continues the series with his take on The Mummy,” say the team.
The Frankenstein posters have sold out at Vice Press, although Paul Mann himself is still offering signed copies of the Variant Edition through his official web site.
Released in collaboration with Bottleneck Gallery, Paul’s officially licensed poster captures Boris Karloff’s take on Ardeth Bay/ Imhotep from the 1933 classic.
To truly capture Paul’s stunning painting, Vice Press are once again releasing this piece as a lithograph print on 300gsm archival paper.
Paul Mann has been an active illustrator and professional artist in America’s Salt Lake City area for 40 years. He has perfected his craft through numerous publications, gallery pieces and commission projects.
