Nautilus Art Prints Presents: François Truffaut

 

 

For their latest series of posters Nautilus Art Prints turned to one of Europe’s finest filmmakers, artists, and craftsmen as inspiration — François Truffaut. 

The films of Truffaut have an insular quality — introspective character studies that helped to define the burgeoning French New Wave movement that arose in the ’50s and ’60s. His visual focus was on the internal landscape of people and their relationships, an exciting departure from the high adventure of Nautilus’ previous authors, H.G. Wells and Jules Verne.

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Truffaut’s passing Nautilus teamed up with Cinémathèque Française and MK2 to release a series of posters in honor of four of his landmark films — ‘Les 400 Coups,’ ‘Jules et Jim,’ ‘Le Dernier Metro,’ and Truffaut’s film film ‘Vivement Dimanche!

Truffault kept his work independent-minded, inspired and aware of the world and time in which he lived, in which is characters lived. In the hands of artists Paul Blow, Mick Wiggins, Jonathan Burton, and Francois Schuiten, the themes and characters of his films are given a new joy.

All four prints will be available from Nautilus’ store on Wednesday October 15th at 10AM PST || 1PM EDT

Each will be $50 and a limited number of sets of all four will be available for $180.
