Yesterday, legendary designer and filmmaker Saul Bass would have been 93. Everyone celebrated in their own way – Google made a doodle in honor of him and artist Fernando Reza created a unique tribute. He created Game of Thrones posters in the Bass’ unique style. He writes, “Each poster commemorates one of Saul Bass’ frequent collaborators Otto Preminger, Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchock, and John Frankenheimer. Each with visual cues to some of Bass’s most iconic works. This also opened the door to envisioning what a Hitchcock/Kubrick/Preminger/ Frankenheimer adaptation may have been, so each print comes complete with prospective cast and crew info at the bottom.” A very small print run of each design is available today on his website.
