    Wonderful art; a lost art, movie posters. The Star Trek: Motion Picture one in particular has been a favorite of mine for about 30 years.

    I happen to have worked with Bob Peak and currently own 3 of his original illustrations for Star Trek (including the first one he made that is pictured above with some of his other works), I also have several dozen of his comps. I plan to put them up for auction when the time is right.

    Hello Harry
    No doubt great design coupled with fantastic art. Do you have any ideas of who was behind the Friday the 13th British cinema poster? It had different art to the U.S version. Thanks in advance
