October 21st 2015 is the date that the Doc and Marty McFly arrive at when they travel forwards in time, in the smash movie Back To The Future 2. We would like to commemorate this historic date by hosting an exhibition of original artwork inspired the movie on that very date next month!

New Rule collective presents, 1.21 GIGAWATTS, an illustrated tribute to the classic movie trilogy Back To The Future!

The classic tale of young Marty McFly and Doc Brown as they haphazardly travel through the space-time continuum, inspired a generation of sci- fi and time travel fanatics around the world, and still stands up as a defining piece of cinema from the 80s.

1.21 GIGAWATTS Book
1.21 GIGAWATTS Book

THE BOOK

The book will be A5 in size, perfect bound and will contain 50 pages of full colour illustrations. Every piece of artwork included in the book is a new design, created specially for this project. Above is a selection of full and cropped pieces from the book, to give a preview of the work included. We don't want to release all of the work before the exhibition, and have saved some of the best to only be shown in the book and show!

FIRST 100 ltd edition

The first run of 100 books we are printing will be a limited edition. Each will be hand numbered and include a cover design only to be used on the initial run. If we surpass the first 100, an alternative cover will be used, but all of the content will be exactly the same.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

PRINTS

We will be printing and selling various art prints of the work included in the project, and have decided to opt for the method of Giclee printing. All prints will be put on sale at the exhibition, as well as online from our webstore. Each illustration will be a limited edition of 50, and once sold they will not be printed again, so grab one while you can!

Giclée, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high end archival quality paper to create prints of superior quality, light fastness and stability.

Put simply, it is the highest quality digital printing method, on the highest quality paper, and it will not fade or alter in colour over time.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

EXHIBITION

The culmination of this project is a week-long, exhibition in the Shoreditch area of East London. Running from October 21st for one week at The Print Space Gallery, 74 Kingsland Road, E2 8DL. Free to all!

The exhibition will be a platform to display the work included in the book, along with additional physical work designed by the artists. Ranging from original paintings, sculptures, and animations. The show gives the opportunity for artists to create unique pieces of work, and for the public to come and experience the whole collection in a curated environment.

Prints and physical work will be for sale exclusively at the show at affordable prices and in limited numbers.

Smallprint

This is, of course, a fan-made project, which has no affiliation with anything that would make it "official." With regards to the original movies referenced in the work. All work is created as a tribute to a much-loved trilogy, paying respect to some of the greatest movies to come out of the 80's!

Any extra funds that surpass the goal will go towards the exhibition costs, further runs of the book, artists and future New Rule projects.

Risks and challenges

Very low!
Our content is already finished, and the gallery is booked. Backers are essentially just pre-ordering a book, and some limited edition goodies. If any problems occur, they will be in the production phase.
The exhibition begins in 5 weeks time, which is ample to have everything printed and finished.
