Art for people who like to read the words and for those who like to just look at the pictures. Pete Ware pours his graphic design talents into this series of swell prints depicting iconic movie characters shaped from the typography of some of their most memorable lines. I'm going to buy them all and have a showdown. It will unfold as follows:

Yoda scurries up the leg of his favorite Autobot and, meeting him eye to eye, reminds Optimus Prime, "Do or do not. There is no try."

Optimus Prime nods, turns to his enemies and announces, "One shall stand, one shall fall."

"I'll crush you with my bare hands," seethes Megatron in an attempt to communicate who's gonna do the standing and who's gonna do the falling.

"Yeah," sneers Darth Vader, "You don't know the power of the dark side."

Chimes in Ivan Drago, "I must break you."

Which forces an irritated Boba Fett to wonder why the biggest are also always the dumbest, and then step in to remind his fellow dark siders, "He's no good to me dead."

From his reserved spot out of the way Luke Skywalker whispers, "I have a very bad feeling about this." To no one in particular since he's kind of a punk and can really only command an audience when he's at risk of imminent death.

As tensions peak, and the verbal spar comes to a head, Harrison Ford as Han Solo and Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones swoop in, armed and ready for action. Solo mocks Vader: "Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid."

Optimus Prime asks what the h-e-double-hockey-sticks they think they're doing breaking rank so ignobly. "I don't know," shrugs Indy, "I'm making this up as I go."

Typographic iconic movie quotes and character posters are printed on 280 gsm cards that will fit into any standard A3 frame (16.5" x 11.7").
