Mondo, Phantom City Creative celebrate “HALLOWEEN” in Style with Vinyl and PostersMovies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
Halloween belongs to John Carpenter. His seminal film that shares its title with our favorite of holidays remains essential. Having just seen it on the big screen last week, I was thrilled to see it retain eerie, stunning power. In celebration of the classic, Mondo—who’s reinvigorated and helped usher in a wave of truly wonderful poster art— have teamed with frequent collaborators Phantom City Creative on two new posters and the art for Mondo’s vinyl release of Carpenter’s iconic score.
Here’s the deal. The vinyl, which is 2XLP in deluxe gatefold jacket pressed on 180 gram black vinyl and randomly inserted orange vinyl, and both posters will go on sale on Halloween (Thursday, October 31) at a random time via Mondo’s Twitter. It is very typically a fastest fingers contest, and judging by the work, will surely be tomorrow. The vinyl will run $30, while the Michael carrying Annie poster (an edition of 325) will run $45 and the Young Michael poster (edition of 150) will run $70. Also available will be two Slip Mats for the vinyl, each $10.
