Star Trek The Original Series Art Prints Set 1

Star Trek The Original Series Art Prints Set 1
Recalling the style of 1960s-era movie posters, pulp novel covers, comic books and advertisements, these Star Trek art prints are the work of artist Juan Ortiz, who was commissioned by CBS. Ortiz created an original retro-style art print for every episode of the original television series, including the first pilot. As CBS’s exclusive partner for North America, QMx will reproduce the art prints and release them in sets of four over the next 20 months.

Designer/illustrator Juan Ortiz talks about the inspiration for the first set of Star Trek: The Original Series Art Prints, which includes:

Episode 9: Dagger of the Mind.”The image is a stylized version of the patch worn by the doctor in the episode,” says Ortiz. “I tried to give this poster an old Playbill look.”
Episode 28: The City on the Edge of Forever. In drawing the character Edith Keeler, Ortiz went with “a ’70s/’Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ approach.” The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine was and still is a big influence in much of his work.
Episode 53: The Ultimate Computer. Ortiz wanted to be sure to credit not just the lead actors, but the writers and director as well. He says, “They are, after all, the creators. I’m just interpreting their words and visuals in a different format.”
Episode 75: The Way to Eden. The look here is Grateful Dead-esque. “I knew that I wanted to create a black-light poster for this series, and naturally, “The Way to Eden,” with its hippie theme, seemed perfect,” says the artist.

The Star Trek: The Original Series Art Prints Set 1 consists of plated-printed lithographs on 100-pound, aqueous-coated, satin-finish paper. Each print measures 18 inches x 24 inches.
