Poster collecting has become big business. Mondo, located in Austin, Texas is at the forefront of Poster Art, with prints from such heavyweights as Ken Taylor, Martin Ansin, Jason Edmiston, and the legendary Drew Struzan.
Mondo’s posters are so highly collected that it’s next to impossible to buy one directly from Mondo on release day. The secondary market for these posters is huge, with sites such as eBay allowing collectors a second-chance to own the poster they seek. Take a look at the work below and visit Mondo for much more.
Now, I bring up Mondo because I want ALL the posters! ALL OF THEM! At every release I make a valiant attempt to purchase one poster and I fail every time. The closest I have been to owning a Mondo poster was to actually GET the poster in my virtual shopping cart. However, just because the poster is in your Cart doesn’t mean you actually call “dibs” on the poster. If enough people submit payment before you get the chance, you lose the poster. I’ve found a lot of posters on eBay, and I imagine I’ll purchase a few on the secondary-market at some point. For now, I just enjoy looking at the fantastic artwork that make up Mondo releases.
