Before you Domestic folks get all excited, this is ONLY being offered to UK residents. The fine folks at Under The Floorboards have come up with a very cool, ultra limited, woodcut box set for the 1973 cult classic, “The Wicker Man.“
(Original theatrical poster)
A righteous police officer investigating the disappearance of a young girl comes into conflict with the unusual residents of a secluded Scottish isle in this unsettling, intelligent chiller. Brought to the island of Summerisle by an anonymous letter, Edward Woodward’s constable is surprised to discover that the island’s population suspiciously denies the missing girl’s very existence.
Even more shocking, at least to the traditionally pious law office, the island is ruled by a libertarian society organized around pagan rituals. Repelled by the open acceptance of sexuality, nature worship, and even witchcraft, the officer takes an antagonistic attitude towards the people and their leader, an eccentric but charming English lord (Christopher Lee). The officer’s unease intensifies as he continues his investigation, slowly coming to fear that the girl’s disappearance may be linked in a particularly horrifying manner to an upcoming public festival. – source
To celebrate this cult classic Under The Floorboards, in collaboration with Studio Canal, is offering an amazing woodcut box set by Richard Wells. (seen above) Here is what you get:
Each boxset includes an original 1973 campaign book (direct from Studio Canal’s vaults), five re-imagined lobby cards (using orginal retouched stills from Studio Canal’s archives), reprinted with Richard’s Wicker Man artwork – these will only be available in the boxset, and, of course, the woodcut of Richard’s Wicker Man poster, woodcut size is 375mm x 243mm. All packaged together in an archival presentation box.
These boxsets are strictly limited to 40, and we are selling them as a pre-order with delivery in June. Unfortunately due to shipping costs these will only be available within the UK. We require a non-refundable deposit of £50 for each boxset and approximately four weeks later we will send a paypal request for the remaining £85 when the boxset is complete and ready to post.
