  1. The Frankenstein print is gorgeous.
    Not sure about that Metropolis typeface, it makes the film look like a knockabout comedy.

  2. I think it’s supposed to show that the time is out of joint.

    Graphics … so lovely …

  3. Unless something’s changed in the last several years, Morris is one of the truly nice guys.

    He was always one of the gentleman, of the collectables field!
