Affordable Fine Trek ArtPosted by T'Bonz - 10/05/11 at 11:05 am
Iron Gut Publishing, a UK-based company, will soon be offering officially-licensed Trek-themed art for purchase.
The art will be offered as “a variety of pieces in various editions and at a wide range of prices,” with each piece of art being accompanied with a certificate of authenticity.
“As a Star Trek fan, I visited many conventions over the years in England,” said Iron Gut owner Anthony Marks. “But it was only when I visited San Diego Comic-Con did I realize that there were beautiful pieces of animation and film related art out there available to buy from studios such as Marvel, Warner Bros and Disney but besides a lot of fan art, there was no official Star Trek fine art program and this is what we are trying to create. We are working with the very best illustrators and artists all over the world to create a range of fine art that would look amazing on any collector’s wall.”
Prices for entry-level art will begin at $25.00, and be limited to a run of five thousand pieces. Some of the art will be available via art galleries and specialist websites, and some of it is already available here, such as the pieces pictured above, featuring Spock.
