Wanted: Retro '2001: A Space Odyssey' Ad Posters


Whether or not you believe 2001: A Space Odyssey is essential viewing, it’s hard not to appreciate the gorgeous retro-futurist design that sets the stage for Stanley Kubrick’s interplanetary head trip. Justin Van Genderen, who has already endeared himself to sci-fi-loving aesthetes with a series of Star Wars-inspired travel posters, has created a pair of ads for 2001‘s Orion III space plane and cinema’s most unforgettable computer, HAL 9000. Although these posters don’t seem to be on sale yet, you can buy reasonably priced prints of Van Genderen’s earlier work at Imagekind and Etsy.
