The fan favorite collectible print gallery and publishing arm of the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Mondo has been home to some of the most geeky art exhibitions and special anniversary events on the planet.

Now those stunning prints and tribute posters are all being collected in a deluxe, 356-page volume simply titled The Art of Mondo, from Insight Editions. This premium hardcover volume gathers an impressive array of cinema- and pop culture-inspired art from their talented stable of artists, like Martin Ansin, Jock, Kilian Eng, Ken Taylor, Mike Sutfin, Drew Struzan and Olly Moss.

 

Here's the official description:

Experience the incredible pop culture art of Mondo, beloved by fans and iconic filmmakers alike.

Based in Austin, Texas, Mondo is an art gallery and online store devoted to the love of film, art, music, and collectibles. Over the years, the company has received global recognition for its incredible art posters that bring to life classic films, television shows, and comics in a refreshing and utterly striking new way, offering a unique perspective on everything from Star Wars to Robocop, Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, Game of Thrones, Godzilla, Kill Bill, and many, many more. For the first time, The Art of Mondo brings together this highly sought-after art in one deluxe volume that showcases the incredible ingenuity of the studio’s diverse stable of artists whose vastly different styles are united by one guiding principle: limitless passion for their subject matter.

Adored by the creative talents to whom Mondo’s art pays tribute—including Paul Thomas Anderson, Guillermo del Toro, Zack Snyder, Quentin Tarantino, and Edgar Wright, to name but a few—this richly imaginative work is fueled by a love of pop culture that fans recognize and identify with, giving Mondo’s output a rare and valuable synergy with its audience. While these posters are normally produced in a limited quantity and sell out in minutes, The Art of Mondo allows fans to explore the studio’s remarkable back catalog, including Olly Moss’s iconic Star Wars trilogy work, Laurent Durieux’s brilliantly subtle Jaws poster, and Tyler Stout’s evocative Guardians of the Galaxy art. Other key Mondo artists such as Jock, Martin Ansin, and Aaron Horkey will also feature. Definitive, visually stunning, and filled with art that celebrates some of the biggest and best-loved properties in pop culture, The Art of Mondo is the ultimate book for cult art fans everywhere.

Check out the vivid cover and peek at Tyler Stout's Guardians of the Galaxy and Rich Kelly's Captain America: The Winter Soldier posters below, and tell us if this Mondo coffee table book will grace your home when it arrives on September 12, retailing for less than $50.
