|Full Metal Jacket|
Artist Livia Lucie created this mind boggling typographic masterpiece in honor of one of the greatest war / anti-war films ever made. For anyone who's seen Full Metal Jacket, or served as a Marine for that matter, you'll immediately recognize the Rifleman's Creed that has been shaped to create the body of said rifle; it's inventive, creepy and beautiful all at the same time. I'd love to see an entire series from Livia dedicated to the films of Kubrick, each with its own clever composition. Over the span of my obsession with poster art I've seen some great type-centric posters, especially as minimalist posters have really started picking up steam over the last year, but I have to say, this may be one of my favorites (definitely top three).
The A3-sized (equivalent to 11.69" X 16.54") Full Metal Jacket print is available right now through the Picmix Store for £12 (or around $19). The storefront says it's a limited edition print, but I'm not seeing the edition size anywhere. If you're having any hesitation about picking one of these up, put it away, because not only will you be buying an awesome poster, 10% of all sales will go toward Wateraid, an organization attempting to improve access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world's poorest communities. It's a win-win. To learn more about Livia Lucie head over to her website and check out her blog. If you've got some extra money lying around, would you mind commissioning her to do another Kubrick-inspired print? I'd really appreciate that. Thanks!
