About this project
This giant print illustrates a visual history of iconic guns from film and television in 115 intricately detailed hand-illustrations. From the classic Smith & Wesson of Dirty Harry to James Bond's PPK to the fictional firearms in classics like Star Wars and Aliens - we have it all covered.
The Collector's Book is a full-color 120+ page reference guide containing all 115+ gun illustrations in larger sizes and images of the original sketches. It includes additional information not available on the large print, for example the background history of each gun model, as well as other films they played a key role in.
Kickstarter Exclusive: Custom Bookplate
All Collector’s books will come with a custom bookplate at no additional cost to you. It will be inscribed with your name (or the name of the person you’re gifting to) and signed by myself.
My name is Cathryn, and I've created the Filmography print series. Through the illustration of iconic items from film and television I wanted to create artwork for fans of popular culture, like myself. Over the past 18 months I’ve completed 2 other prints, The Filmography of Cars which illustrates popular cars from TV and film and The Filmography of Aircraft, which illustrates 100 years of aviation in film.
With your help I’ll complete one of the most challenging pieces yet, The Filmography of Guns.
Each gun was sketched by hand with meticulous attention to every detail. It was then converted to a digital illustration. By drawing each gun at a large size (approx 12” x 18”) the detail of the weapon remains crisp when reduced in scale on the print.
It started with a sketch, and evolved into The Filmography of Guns insignia design. Tee’s will be screen printed with 3 colors on premium quality, American Apparel 100% Ring Spun Cotton.
We want to thank every backer that supported this campaign for your AMAZING support - you guys ROCK! To show our gratitude, all backers who pledged $25 or more will receive a signed 8" x 10" Kickstarter Exclusive print of the winning gun, the Walther PPK.
With your help I’ve picked 64 guns from the print to do something fun with. A tournament of the iconic guns from film. It will be a daily contest where all you awesome backers will be able to vote on which gun wins and goes through to the next round... then we'll do something fun with the winner!
Behold! The winner, none other than the side piece of James Bond himself...
This has been a wonderful journey. I'll never watch another film with a gun without either already knowing or researching the model. (But that's my cross to bare.) Your appreciation of this artwork means everything to me.
Risks and challenges
The prints will be printed on 24" X 36" 100lb archival recycled cover stock in Red Hook, Brooklyn with organic archival quality inks. I use organic archival inks that provide a top quality print that will last a lifetime. The amount I'm asking for covers the set-up and printing costs for 1500 copies of the poster as well as the custom packaging and mailing of each poster.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
