Alexa here. This fall has put me in home-decorating mode while we look for a new house; I am using a lot of my brain space filling the space we haven't found yet. My fantasies have recently led me to look for art that represents my love of film, but not in an obvious, film-poster way. So I'm pretty sure that something from UK design Studio Dorothy will find its way into our home.
Dorothy is a group of 4 designers who create some unexpected and clever film art. On the top of my lust list are these prints from their Hollywood Star Chart series, wherein they re-imagine constellations as American films from cinema's Golden Age and the modern era.
Two closeup details...
Imaginary Los Angeles maps and illustrated books after the jump....
I'm also in love with their film map, an imagined street map that is loosely based on Los Angeles and includes a Lost Highway, Field of Dreams and Reservoir Dogs reservoir.
Oh, and I've already started my Christmas shopping by buying their illustrated It's a Wonderful Life for my daughter.
They also have illustrated editions of Deliverance, Logan's Run, La Cabina, and, yes, Deep Throat. You can find all of these and more at their shop.
