Posters For Sale by TheQuadFather
« on: February 10, 2019, 08:31:06 AM »
I am starting this new thread to sell some of my posters. Primarily these will be film posters from Thailand but later there will be posters from other countries too.

I am Neil Pettigrew and I started collecting film posters in the late 1960s. In the late 1990s I discovered Thai film posters while travelling around the country and was immediately struck by the quality of the artwork, the bold design and the level of detail. I spent the next several years scouring every corner of Thailand looking for rare posters and saving as many as I could before they got sent for recycling. As a result I have doubles of a number of them and these are the ones I will be offering here.

To put it simply: Thai posters are my passion!

I have written about Thai posters in magazines including Firecracker (2006) and The Dark Side (2015 and 2016), and have contributed articles about them to books including Rough Guide to Thailand (2005 and 2006) and  Thai Cinema (2006). I have staged exhibitions of Thai posters at the Horniman Museum, London (2006) and the Curzon Cinema, London (2008).

I love the old Hong Kong horror films, with their clever balance of the scary and the comic. Here’s the Thai poster SPOOKY SPOOKY (1988; aka THE HAUNTED ISLAND), directed by the legendary Sammo Hung. It’s a favourite poster of mine, painted by Supoj (pronounced Supot), who sometimes just signs as “Poj” (as here). The superb artwork highlights the climactic moment in which a zombie (played by Sammo Hung himself, I believe) is pumped full of gas before exploding. A montage below the main image features a disembodied hand, a grisly zombie close-up, a GHOSTBUSTERS-style confrontation and more.   
In very good condition. Has been folded once vertically and once horizontally. I’ve stored it flat for nearly twenty years so will ship it rolled in a tube. Minor edge wear.

Price £20.00. ( = US$25.75).
Plus shipping in a sturdy tube. To the UK: £7.50. To the US: £12.00
Just send me a private message via this site if you are interested. Include your email address and I will send you a Paypal invoice.

Today I have for sale an original Thai poster for RUNAWAY (1984), the enjoyable science fiction film starring Tom Selleck, Cynthia Rhodes, Gene Simmons (of KISS) and Kirstie Alley. From the book by Michael Crichton.
Terrific artwork by Bangkok artist Kwow, including a great image of the spider-robots. It improves enormously on the artwork used in the US one-sheet by adding a montage of colourful images of scenes from the film.
This is a VERY SCARCE poster and you may struggle to find one in better condition.   
Measures 21½” by 31½” in good / very good, folded condition. It has been folded once vertically and once horizontally, like most Thai posters.

Price: UK£35 (or US$45.50); plus shipping from the UK. It will be shipped in a sturdy tube. Shipping to the UK: £7.50. To the US: £12.00
Payment by Paypal only, please. 
Send me a message if you are interested.

For sale today is the original Thai poster for RABID, the 1977 horror film directed by David Cronenberg and starring Marilyn Chambers.
The gruesome artwork is by Udom and shows, among other delights, the nasty little growth coming out of Chambers’ armpit and an image of a woman whose mouth is covered in blood. It’s the sort of imagery which very probably would never have been permitted on posters in Europe in America.
The poster measures 21½” by 31½” in very good unfolded condition. There is a small area of water staining at the top border. It is only just noticeable, and would not be noticeable at all if the poster was mounted and framed. 

Price: UK£40 (or US$50.43); plus shipping from the UK. It will be shipped flat. Shipping to the UK: £5.50. To the US: £11.00
Payment by Paypal only, please.
