A Brief Look: The Prints of Black Dragon Press

 

 

Since its inception London based print publisher Black Dragon Press has been releasing a steady flow of unique and elegant prints from a bevy of artists from across the globe. Their subjects have ranged from the darkly tormented world of Adrian Lynes’ ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ to the sublime work of Andrei Tarkovsky and his film ‘Solaris.’

It is a catalog of limited edition prints that has a sense of vision — each choice of film and corresponding illustrator gives a voice to the overall body of work. The established tone of Black Dragon Press is that of a leathered library — pipe smoke and dust, a dim lit room. The prints of Delort, Diamond, Ortiz and the rest are all pieces that hang with an air of intellect and grace.

It is a rare feat when a poster like Edward Kinsella‘s ‘Andrei Rublev‘ can, with sudden impact, make your life feel far more sophisticated than it actually should.
