When Victor Flemming’s film, “The Wizard of Oz” burst onto the silver screen back in 1939, it instantly transported fans to a magical, far away land and cemented itself in the pop culture lexicon for eternity. L. Frank Baum’s novel has been passed on from generation to generation and is beloved world wide.
Today, Mondo has announced the upcoming release of three sensational new prints by the talented folks at DKNG. All three pay homage to the film that has entertained countless hordes of fans for over 115 years.
Here is what DKNG had to say about this daunting project. “When approaching a film as iconic as The Wizard of Oz, we wanted to find a unique focal point beyond the main iconography of the film. The Horse of a Different Color occupies just a brief scene, but proved to be a great subject for a print series that includes the three different colors – red, purple, and yellow – that the horse takes on in the film. Each print shares three ink colors with the fourth screen customized to provide the color change for each variant.”
Each of these emerald beauties will be hand numbered with each color having a run of 175 each and cost only $40 apiece. These prints go on sale tomorrow, April, 21st at a random time.
