Minimal Poster Space?
This great selection of posters has been unveiled recently by Alex Freeman and they’re rather smashing, minimalist tributes to each incarnation of the Doctor.
As you can see from this snap of the first six, the posters – available as A3 prints – feature the very specific sartorial motifs of the individual Doctors; for instance the Third Doctor print is a ruffled shirt collar.
While fascinating (and beyond those seen here, another 5 are available) there is something I just can’t quite fathom. The Fourth Doctor’s appearance – hat, scarf, tie, coat, jacket, waistcoat and shirt has been bizarrely reduced to just a scarf on a brown background.
My problem with this is that while each of the other prints could quite easily be the Doctor from neck to navel, the Fourth Doctor print couldn’t, which I feel is a terrible shame while visibly absolutely referring to the intended Doctor loses the character that the others all have.
Hit up Alex Freeman’s flickr page for order details and to contact the designer.
